Baker's account of searching for a mythical Tibetan waterfall over more than a decade brilliantly interweaves adventure and spirituality along with open-minded meditations on our relationship with the natural world. Riveting stuff for anyone who loves a good adventure, has an interest in Tibetan Buddhism or looks at the mountains with a feeling of reverence.
