Synopsis

Seven Years in Tibet is an autobiography written by Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer based on his real life experiences in Tibet between 1944 and 1951. The story takes place during the Second World War and the interim period before the Communist Chinese People's Liberation Army moved into Tibet in 1950. It narrates the true story of an Austrian prisoner of war who successfully escaped his British captors in India in 1944 on the third attempt. His escape route led him across Tibet. In 1943, Heinrich Harrer, escaped captivity and made his way through the Himalayan passes to the Forbidden City of Lhasa in Tibet and finally lived for years in Lhasa becoming a tutor to the Dalai Lama.  Seven Years in Tibet  was first published in Germany before being acquired by Dutton.

About 2nd Act Books

We've only been in business since February 2019, but have a loyal customer base on the downtown mall in Charlottesville, VA. We are one of four bookstores on the mall, each of us with a different niche. Ours is children's books, while Blue Whale offers rare books, New Dominion sells new books only, and Daedalus sells second-hand books of every description. We are trying to get through this health crisis like every other indie bookstore, so your help is appreciated.
