Stones of Silence: Journeys in the Himalaya
Over a period of six years, Dr. Schaller explored the awesome Himalays in order to study the fascinating but increasingly rare wild life of the area and to determine what locations would make good reserves and national parks.

High adventure, introspection, observation, and discovery are a part of this story.
