About the Author
Singer-songwriter and poet Almond Syiem was born in the gentle hills of Northeast India, not far from the steep, rugged and diverse ranges of the Himalaya. This landscape is very much a passion of his heart and infuses his poetry with feeling, pathos and tragedy.
George Tetlow, book designer, illustrator and lecturer has trekked extensively through Zanskar and Ladakh in the Himalayan mountains. He also traveled to Nepal, Tibet and China. Inspired by these sojourns George has produced and exhibited many fine artworks including the images in this book.
