17. November 1988 Paladin Books
A landmark in travel writing, this is the incredible true story of Heinrich Harrer's escape across the Himalayas to Tibet, set against the backdrop of the Second World War. Heinrich Harrer, already one of the greatest mountaineers of his time, was climbing in the Himalayas when war broke out in Europe. He was imprisoned by the British in India but succeeded in escaping and fled to Tibet. Settling in Lhasa, the Forbidden City, where he became a friend and tutor to the Dalai Lama, Heinrich Harrer spent seven years gaining a more profound understanding of Tibet and the Tibetans than any Westerner before him. More recently made into a film starring Brad Pitt, Seven Years in Tibet is a stunning story of incredible courage and self-reliance by one of the twentieth century's best travel writers.

Originally published in 1953, this adventure classic recounts Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer's 1943 escape from a British internment camp in India, his daring trek across the Himalayas, and his happy sojourn in Tibet, then, as now, a remote land little visited by foreigners. Warmly welcomed, he eventually became tutor to the Dalai Lama, teenaged god-king of the theocratic nation. The author's vivid descriptions of Tibetan rites and customs capture its unique traditions before the Chinese invasion in 1950, which prompted Harrer's departure. A 1996 epilogue details the genocidal havoc wrought over the past half-century. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


'It deserves its place among the few great travel stories of our times.' The Times 'This is an absorbing and remarkable travel tale that also gives unparalleled accounts of the life and customs of an inaccessible region.' Sunday Times 'Few adventurers in this century have had the combined luck and hardihood to return with such news as this. Fewer still have rendered it so powerfully unadorned.' Times Literary Supplement 'Some books, like some mountains, are lonely and unrivalled peaks. This is one of them.' Economist

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent insight into a lost culture 2. November 1997
Heinrich Harrer's natural writing style makes this book a pleasure to read. Although Harrer states that he is not trained in literature, his writing style is pleasant and down to earth. This book - written through the eyes of an Austrian - gives not only an insight into the lost culture of Tibet but also expresses the sensitive character of the Austrian mountaineer. (Don't listen to the news telling us that he was a Nazi. When you read this book, you will learn that he did not have the time nor the interest to kill jews. In contrast, he loved - and was loved by - a people who pick up little insects before anyone steps on them.) Many years ago, my mother introduced me to this book. She was born in Harrer's hometown Huettenberg and has met him a few times. Maybe someday you have time to visit the little museum about Harrer's adventures in Tibet in this charming Austrian mountain village.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Seven Year in Tibet - Top Notch. 19. Mai 2000
The story of a dramatic escape by Heinrich Harrer and his climbing associate Peter Aufschnaiter from and Indian internment camp after their arrest by the British when they were attempting to climb Nanga Parbat, at the outbreak of World War II. The book details their journey across Tibet including their near demise with the Khampas, before reaching Lhasa and in my view, discovering a way of looking at life very different to our own. The book then goes on to cover Heinrich Harrer's relationship with the Young Dalai Lama and the Dalai Lama's enthusiasm to learn more about the world he lived in. The book also provides an insight into life in Lhasa before the coming of the Chinese. Finishing with the onset of the Chinese occupation and the flight of the Dalai Lama, I found this to be a very well written book and it can be seen throughout the book how the very personality of the author changes from how I would describe as something not to far short of arrogance at the beginning to someone who cared very much about a people who just wanted to be able to get on with a way of live that had lasted for centuries and which to a great degree they were content with, but due to circumstances beyond their control, they were unable to do. I read this book after visiting Tibet myself in 1998 and the contrast between the Tibet described in the book and that which I saw was a sharp one. Heinrich Harrer himself returned to Tibet in 1982 and observed the changes himself (detailed in 'Return to Tibet', more of a thesis than a story, but nevertheless essential reading after 'Seven Years in Tibet'), noting the loss of much he had held dear when he was there in the 1940's.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An useful guide for travellers 25. April 2000
I decided to read the book when I started thinking about travelling to Tibet (and after gaining a book of Dalai Lama). I was really surprised with the amount of useful information about Tibet: its people, its culture; its traditions; its politics and so on. So, I strongly recommend it to everybody that is interested in knowing better the tibetan culture and way of thinking and being. And to those who are planning to visit Tibet or, who knows, are interested in the tragic story of these people.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The transformation of a troubled soul 24. April 2000
The saga of a troubled soul that finds a piece of mind, true "nirvana" at the roof of a world. This is more than and adventure book. This is the autobiography of a man who after living seven years among the clouds, changed his perception of his interaction with the world. More than simpley reconsidering his lifestyle and religious beliefs, Harrer managed to change his life in every possible way. Finally obtaining peace of mind. A great book written by a great adventurer. Changed my life. . . got the gutts to change aswell? Then read Seven Years in Tibet.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Seven Years In Tibet 5. Februar 2000
While Heinrich Harrer admits from the start that he is no great writer, (and I agree with him), the story itself is so compelling and the union of his star with the historical movements in Tibet so well alligned that the man can be forgiven for just being there and letting us share in the experience. The simplicity of his words is in keeping with the innocence of Tibet and its people. They are hand and glove and there is no better fit then when, toward the end of the book, he tutors His Holiness, and brings us directly into contact with the living Buddha. It is no less a moving experience for all of us. The torturous trip from India into Tibet and finally into the holy city of Lahsa, the majestic beauty of the Himalayas, the simple faith of the people all combine to make this a worthwhile experience. It is a wake up call for all people of faith and love. Thank you Heinrich.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An extraordinary voyage! 30. August 1999
Few western men reached the legendary city of Lhasa deep into the ancient kingdom of Tibet. Heinrich Harrer was one of them. He is a man of simple, but precise words. There is no highly sophisticated literary style in his writing only the truth and for me that is still the best poetry I can think of. This book tells the real tale of an extraordinary and perilous voyage into an unknown land an an even less known society. Despite the terrain and cultural barriers in front of him the author succeded in escaping his persecutors and penetrating the world of the high society of Tibet with awesome skill and determination. Yet this peaceful world was about to fall at the feet of the Chinese conquerors I believe that like the book of Marco Polo Harrer's book will remain among the great adventure books of history. Aside from being a declaration of war against the cruel Chinese conquerors and their powerful, brutal regime this book stands as a great hymn of freedom, determination and human friendship even among different cultures.
