A memoir and portrait of three generations of Tibetan women whose lives are forever changed when Chairman Mao's Red Army crushes Tibetan independence, sending a young mother and her six-year-old daughter on a treacherous journey across the snowy Himalayas toward freedom. Kunsang thought she would never leave Tibet. One of the country's youngest Buddhist nuns, she grew up in a remote mountain village where, as a teenager, she entered the local nunnery. Though simple, Kunsang's life gave her all she needed: a oneness with nature and a sense of the spiritual in all things. She married a monk, had two children, and lived in peace and prayer. But not for long. There was a saying in Tibet: "When the iron bird flies and horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the face of the earth." The Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1950 changed everything. When soldiers arrived at her mountain monastery, destroying everything in their path, Kunsang and her family fled across the Himalayas only to spend years in Indian refugee camps. She lost both her husband and her youngest child on that journey, but the future held an extraordinary turn of events that would forever change her life, the arrival in the refugee camps of a cultured young Swiss man long fascinated with Tibet. Martin Brauen will fall instantly in love with Kunsang's young daughter, Sonam, eventually winning her heart and hand, and taking mother and daughter with him to Switzerland, where Yangzom will be born. Many stories lie hidden until the right person arrives to tell them. In rescuing the story of her now 90-year-old inspirational grandmother and her mother, Yangzom Brauen has given us a book full of love, courage, and triumph,as well as allowing us a rare and vivid glimpse of life in rural Tibet before the arrival of the Chinese. Most importantly, though, this story is a testament to three strong, determined women who are linked by an unbreakable family bond.… (mais)

Thoughts: Ms. Brauen writes of her grandmother, Kunsang's escape from Chinese occupied Tibet in 1959 with her husband and two young daughters. The trek over the Himalayas to reach India was difficult and filled wth heartache. Life in India was not easy either, they were poor, sometimes homeless and not particularly welcome. None the less, through fortitude, hard work and the kindness of strangers they survive. A young student from Switerland changes their lives in a most fortuitous way still despite their new lives they desire to return to Tibet and keep their culture alive and relevant. ( )

Die Geschichte dreier Frauen aus Tibet. Die Grossmutter flüchtete
mit ihrer Tochter - die später einen Schweizer Ethnologen heiratete -
nach Indien. Die Enkelin - geboren in der Schweiz - schrieb das Buch, sie ist Schauspielerin ( )

La joven monja Kunsang pensó que jamás abandonaría Tíbet. La simplicidad de su vida la llenaba por dentro: la unidad con la naturaleza, la espiritualidad —presente en todos los seres—, su matrimonio con un monje y sus dos hijos. Pero esta vida de paz y rezo iba a cambiar por completo. En 1950 China invadió Tíbet y este hecho cambió sus vidas. Cuando llegaron al monasterio no tuvieron más remedio que huir y ahí empezó su viaje por las nevadas cumbres del Himalaya en el que para Kunsang sería el invierno más duro de su existencia.

Yangzom Brauen erzählt hier ihre Familiengeschichte. Ihre Großmutter ist eine tibetische Nonne, ihre Mutter zunächst in Tibet aufgewachsen und als Sechsjährige mit den Eltern über den Himalaya nach Indien geflüchtet. Sie lernte einen Schweizer kennen und heiratete ihn. Yangzom selbst ist ein westliches Mädchen, eine Schauspielerin und Model. Das Buch ist besonders wegen der ausführlichen Darstellung der drei Personen interessant, die jeweils eine andere Kultur verkörpern. Hierbei ist natürlich besonders die tibetisch buddhistische Kultur ungewöhnlich und spannend. ( )

De schrijfster verteld het verhaal van haar moeder en grootmoeder, hun leven in Tibet en de vlucht ervandaan, de veranderingen in hun leven. Interessant verhaal. ( )
