Trespassers on the Roof of the World Summary


Trespassers on the Roof of the World by Peter Hopkirk

Hidden behind the Himalayas and ruled over by a God-king, Tibet has always cast a powerful spell over travellers form the West. In this remarkable, and ultimately tragic narrative, Peter Hopkirk recounts the forcible opening up of this medieval land during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the extraordinary race between agents, soldiers, missionaries, mountaineers, explorers, and mystics from nine different countries to reach Lhasa, Tibet's sacred capital. His story concludes with the ultimate act of trespass - the Chinese invasion of 1950. This book is intended for those with a general interest in the Far East, history, and adventure. Some academic interest.
