Child of Tibet

Child of Tibet tells the remarkable story of Soname's triumph over adversity, told against the backdrop of a turbulent and dangerous Tibet. When she was just 16 Soname risked death in a freedom trek across the Himalayas, finally arriving in Dharamsala, home in exile of the Dalai Lama.

Even after managing to escape from Tibet, she faced further dangers and heartache in India … Soname is a striking, funny and unsentimental woman. Hers is a story of immense will, unbelievable courage and, above all, an indomitable soaring free spirit.

Soname's 2006 autobiography Child of Tibet is available to buy online from Little, Brown Books.
