The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen
Novelist, naturalist, activist, Buddhist and spy, Peter Matthiessen pursued a varied and distinguished career in late twentieth century letters. His vivid and poetic account of a gruelling 250 mile journey across the Tibetan Himalayas in search of the near-mythical snow leopard combines stirring physical adventure with profound spiritual questing.
A Whole Life by Robert Seethaler
A huge hit in his native Austria, Robert Seethaler’s brief, word-perfect novel is a haunting exploration of solitude, stillness and humanity’s relationship with nature,
evoking a remote time and place in exquisite lyrical prose.
