"An escape that for drama and daring makes most Hollywood fare pale by comparison...[Brown's] neutral journalistic tone is useful for reporting so much that seems incredible." –Washington Post
The 17th Karmapa, one of the holiest figures in Tibetan Buddhism, arrived in Dharmsala as a 14-year-old boy in 2000, after an extraordinary escape across the Himalayas. Fascinated by this charismatic young figure, Mick Brown traveled to meet him, and found himself drawn into the labyrinthine web of intrigue surrounding the 17th Karmapa's recognition and early life.
