Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

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 andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Pressestimmen

'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

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.

What a wonderful book this is, a witness to a culture that is gone, and soon the last people who still knew this culture will be gone too. I was in Tibet, and also lived amongst the Tibetan population in Nepal, and my heart was hurting when I read this book, and thought of how Tibet is today. What luck that the Tibetans allowed him in, that he could take photos and take short movies, and especially write a book about his experience.

The writing style is simple, yes, some of the religious expressions are wrong, but so what? It's the heart in the words that counts, the emotion, the love for a people that permeates everything, and the fact that his experience is unique, which make it an astonishing book. Highly recommended for anybody who is interested in the Tibetan culture, or in any book about very rare cultural experiences.

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.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

I am a Tibetan, born in Tibet, I grew up India and now I live in Boston.I read Seven years in Tibet when I was in school in India some 24 years ago.I immensely liked the book and the sense of adventure,hope and uncertainty that Heinrich Harrer and his companion Peter were facing or about to face then.When my family escaped the communist Chinese invasion of our Country,our home and our way of life, I was then very little.I knew then something very bad was happening, because my family members were packing and getting ready to go somewhere. I did not know then where we were headed.Seven years in Tibet opened my eyes about my country, my religon, my family,my leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama, my identity and above all the great adventure and hardship the author and his friend were going through. After I read Seven years in Tibet, I recommended the book to my friends and was telling them the story.
When I heard last year that Seven years in Tibet was being made a Hollywood film, I was thrilled.I thought if the film maker did a good job then the film would be a hit.The Film would portray Tibetan culture,way of life,Buddism in Tibet and the political situation in Tibet before and after the Chinese communist's PLA invasion. I saw the film couple times but it was not as good as I expected. Never the less, I am still recommending the book and film to my friends, who are curious, want to know more about Tibet,Tibetans and Tibetan Buddhism.The book and the film will do a lot of good for the Tibetan cause.It will publicise the plight of Tibetan and Tibet.The film has some shortcomings but then something is better than nothing at least.
