Sky Train, Tibetan Women on the Edge of History
by Sam Canyon
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 278 PAGES
Through a lyrical account of a journey back to Tibet in 2007 on the occasion of the opening of new high speed train connecting Beijing and Lhasa, activist Canyon contemplates modern history from the perspective of Tibetan women. She celebrates Tibetan New Year with the Lhasa family whom she'd befriended decades earlier and concludes an oral-history project with women elders.
