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. Just as the outside influences of the last quarter century are taking their toll of the wildlife of the region, so are they changing the culture of the people who have lived there for centuries. High adventure, introspection, observation, and discovery are a part of this story.
