The Snow Leopard

Enjoy this special edition hardback of one of the greatest pieces of travel and nature writing ever written. Go with Peter Matthiessen all the way to Dolpo, a Tibetan plateau in the high Himalayas. This is the account of a journey to the dazzling Tibetan plateau of Dolpo in the high Himalayas. In 1973 Matthiessen made the 250-mile trek to Dolpo, as part of an expedition to study wild blue sheep. It was an arduous, sometimes dangerous, physical endeavour: exertion, blisters, blizzards, endless negotiations with sherpas, quaking cold. But it was also a 'journey of the heart' - amongst the beauty and indifference of the mountains Matthiessen was searching for solace. He was also searching for a glimpse of a snow leopard, a creature so rarely spotted as to be almost mythical. WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY RICHARD MABEY 'A beautiful book, and worthy of the mountains he is among' Paul Theroux 'A delight' i Paper

"Following the downgrading by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) of snow leopard status in September 2017 from 'endangered' to 'vulnerable,' debate has renewed about the actual numbers of snow leopards in the wild and strategies for facilitating coexistence between these enigmatic animals and humans. Evidence from Pakistan and other parts of the snow leopard home range shows that snow leopards rely heavily on human society for their existence, as domestic livestock accounts for as much as 70 percent
