Wolfe has been called “the most prolific and sensitive recorder of a rapidly vanishing natural world”. Now internationally acclaimed nature photographer Art Wolfe captures the magic of the world’s most magnificent mountain landscape, the high Himalaya.

Through wonderful photos taken on journeys through Pakistan, India, Nepal, Tibet, and China, Wolfe presents the Himalaya in all its beauty and grandeur - not only the natural landscape, but also the human landscape and the people who inhabit both. Star tracks arc the night sky over a towering Mount Everest. The lines and textures of terraced mustard fields embroider the spare foothills. Many-hued prayer flags flap from the jumbled rooftops of Namche Bazaar. An old woman spins a prayer wheel near the Potala Palace. Kazahk horsemen sprint and weave in an ancient game played on the high Pamir Plateau, dust billowing. Includes interviews with Reinhold Messner, Ed Viesturs, and Doug Scott by Peter Potterfield.
