"In the early 1960s a rumour circulated through China that one of its soldiers in Tibet had been brutally fed to vultures. Xinran was a little girl: the tale frightened and fascinated her. She knew nothing about the Tibetan custom of 'Sky Burial' - indeed few Chinese at the time knew or understood such rituals. But thirty years later, Xinran met a Chinese woman who could tell her the astonishing story that lay behind the legend. Her name was Shu Wen and she had spent most of her adult life lost on the Tibetan plateau." "In 1958, Wen was twenty-six. She and her husband Kejun were young medical students, fired with the hope and enthusiasm of the early Communist years. It was this idealism that led Kejun to join the army as a doctor. But, only a few months after her marriage, Wen heard that her husband had been killed in action in Tibet. Refusing to believe the news, she too joined up as a doctor and set out for Tibet in search of him. She entered a landscape that nothing had prepared her for - the silence, the altitude, the emptiness were terrifying. But Wen's determination to find Kejun drove her on. It would drive her when she became separated from her regiment, and when she was lost in the mountains of north Tibet. It would drive her through long years of wandering in an alien and confusing culture. Thirty years later it would lead her to discover the truth about what happened to her husband... When finally Wen returned to China, she found a country transformed beyond recognition by the Cultural Revolution and the Deng Xiaoping. But she, too, was transformed: in China she had always striven towards a material goal; in Tibet she had learned new spirituality." "In this book, Xinran recreates Shu Wen's journey in a story of love, loss, loyalty and survival."--BOOK JACKET.… (mais)

A few weeks back I read another tale of Tibet, Eat the Buddha. Though the story told in that book was fascinating, the whole was a mess of anti Chinese propaganda. As I discussed in some detail in that book review, I spent a good deal of time in China, in the 80s and 90s including a number of months in Chengdu and villages west of there. People shared with me horrible heartbreaking stories of their experiences during Mao's rule and the time of the Gang of Four. I am no fan of the Chinese government, but there is plenty of real stuff to talk about without ascribing internal evil into every Chinese person and internal good to every Tibetan person. Chinese Tibetan relations are complex.

So I was thrilled to read this book which told a true story, a fantastical tale that is engrossing and sad and informative and free of political editorial. Xinran relates a story as she heard it, and it is filled with lost love and true bravery and respect for every person depicted. I guarantee you have never read a story like it, and that if you have an historical interest in Tibet you will be engrossed. ( )

Xinran recounts, in beautiful terms, the story of a Chinese woman who spent thirty years wandering Tibet in search of her husband, a doctor with the People's Liberation Army who was reported killed in action during the invasion of Tibet. She didn't believe he was dead and spent most of her life looking for answers, never giving up hope that she would find him. A fascinating and wonderful story of love, loss, grief, and incredible strength, simply and lovingly retold. Highly recommended. ( )

A beautiful story, very well told. The story takes us into the conflicts between the Chinese and Tibetan people, and then into the heart of the Tibetan culture. Sad, beautiful, unforgetable. ( )
