Book Summary:

‘A Picture is worth a thousand words’ is the underlying motif behind the creation of this photo book on one of the most famous treks of Nepal, The Annapurna Base Camp Trek or The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. The Annapurna Conservation Area is a well-known trekking region. There are three major trekking routes in the Annapurna region—the Jomsom Trek to Jomsom and Muktinath; the Annapurna Sanctuary route to Annapurna Base Camp; and the Annapurna Circuit, which circles the Annapurna Himal itself and includes the Jomsom route. The Annapurna Sanctuary route covered in this book transposes one to the icy heartland of the Annapurna range, a magnificent amphitheater surrounded by peaks ranging from 6000 to 8000 meters. This book encapsulates this amazing land and its culture through its photographs.

Book Summary:

Joseph Dixon, a seasoned traveler, is drawn to the ethereal ruggedness of the Himalayas. But it s the turn of the millennium and the Maoist People s War has been quietly tearing Nepal apart. As a volunteer, Joseph settles into the Myagdi district of Nepal, a good two days walk to anywhere he would consider civilization. In the tiny village of Rinrut he meets young Kunjana, a wartime orphan whose parents have been killed by Maoists. Once the violence overflows into Myagdi and Kunjana is attacked, Joseph, trying to give this young child a chance at a life in Kathmandu plots her escape. Joseph s noble intentions have consequences far greater than he could have imagined. After trekking the famed but increasingly hostile Annapurna Circuit trek, and upon his return home, Joseph is forced to come to terms with himself and his connection to the Kingdom in the Clouds.

Book Summary:

Many disenchanted Westerners have gone to the Himalayas in search of renewal, but no one has written about the experience as perceptively and personally as Andrew Stevenson in Annapurna Circuit. A traveller all his life, Stevenson responds to people and places with an openness unique to the cultural nomad - his portraits of the men, women and children of the Annapurnas, and the fellow-backpackers from all over the world who intermittently shared his journey, are a delight; his descriptions of the landscape, and the physical hardships of the trek are enthralling. But like every travel book of real quality, this is also the result of a spiritual journey. A richly rewarding read on every level, Annapurna Circuit is a modern travel classic in the tradition of Peter Matthiesson's Snow Leopard and Andrew Harvey's Journey to Ladakh.
