About the book
A powerful, emotional memoir, Across Many Mountains is an extraordinary 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.
Across Many Mountains is a moving, multi-generational family memoir of three determined and strong women, written by the youngest, Yangzom, who, in resurrecting the story of her inspirational grandmother Kunsang, and persistent mother Sonam, has given us a book full of courage, love, and triumph.
