Yak Butter Blues: Una Caminata de Fe por el Tíbet (Spanish - download pdf or read online

By Brandon Wilson,Ramon Sole

• Ganador de un previo IPPY, autonomous writer (Edición inglesa)

Qué se necesita para sobrevivir? Más de lo que imaginan.

“Imposible” fue lo que todo el mundo dijo a Brandon Wilson y su mujer Cheryl cuando empezaron a hablar de recorrer a pie una antigua ruta de pelegrinaje de 1.000 quilómetros a través del Tíbet. Pero esas “imposibilidades” sólo aumentaron su determinación. Su intento de convertirse posiblemente en los angeles primera pareja occidental en recorrer esta ruta a través del rincón más remoto del mundo estaba lejos de los típicos planes de viaje: algunos lo llamaron pura locura. Realmente, no fue ni fácil ni predecible. Pero ahora podeis uniros a ellos en su odisea: escasez de aire, ventiscas y tormentas de nieve…retos que el agotamiento, el hambre, las enfermedades, los burócratas inflexibles y los soldados chinos de gatillo fácil hicieron todavía más difíciles.

Yak Butter Blues: Una Caminata de Fe Por El Tíbet es un apasionante cuento sobre supervivencia. Solos, únicamente con su fiel caballo tibetano Sadhu, los Wilson se enfrentaron de cara al entorno implacable del Tíbet: vientos incesantes, temperaturas extremas, and so forth.

Aunque el país y el clima dejaban sus huellas diarias, los pelegrinos tibetanos, monjes y generosos aldeanos dejaron una impresión aún más duradera en nuestros aventureros; gente que compartió lo poco que tenía: té de mantequilla de yak, l. a. calidez de los angeles hoguera popular, camaradería y firme confianza en el retorno del Dalai Lama. Sin querer, los Wilson se convirtieron también en pelegrinos y privilegiados testimonios de una cultura empujada al borde de l. a. extinción por una ocupación brutal. El autor intercala en su relato l. a. historia de l. a. lucha del Tíbet por sobrevivir.

A lo largo de este uncomplicated camino, los Wilson descubrieron el vínculo humano que nos conecta, un vínculo más evidente que nunca en una caminata que elimina las distracciones de los angeles vida moderna y deja al descubierto las verdades del “viaje reflexivo”. Practicándolo, los angeles pareja descubre un sentido de un objetivo más amplio, un asombro, una fe renovada y, al fin y al cabo, lo que se necesita para resistir. Este cuento multicolor, cándido, bondadoso y clásico conduce al lector a través de un pelegrinaje físico, espiritual y emocional a través de este asombroso país: en una odisea de 1.000 quilómetros calificada una vez de “imposible” .

"Recomendado para viajes de aventura y colecciones de cultura tibetana" - Library Journal

"Una lectura apasionante y fascinante que seguro que será apreciada por los lectores interesados en el turismo de aventura y los angeles cultura tibetana. También es una historia altamente espiritual sobre l. a. fe que nos recuerda que nada es realmente imposible, que los obstáculos se han magnificado en los angeles mente humana, y que el viaje es mucho más importante que el destino mismo." ~ Midwest e-book Review

"Un cuento de gran altura sobre sincronicidad, divina providencia, monjes mendigos, soldados chinos de gatillo fácil y deshidratación." ~ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Una verdadera peregrinación que sondea el corazón del turbulento Tíbet y enseña a los impacientes y tercos occidentales a frenar y apreciar este increíble planeta." ~ Honolulu Advertiser

“Una lectura maravillosa y salvaje. los angeles escritura es emotiva, viva y un poco amenazante. Yak Butter Blues se queda gravado en l. a. mente como l. a. impresión retiniana tras el flash de una lámpara, hasta mucho después de haberlo leído…”. ~ Richard Bangs, aventurero/productor ejecutivo de nice Escapes MSNBC

“Caí en el hechizo de los angeles prosa vívida e intensa de Brandon Wilson. Es un magnífico escritor: perspicaz, divertido y con gran facilidad con las palabras, y hace del libro una muy buena lectura”. ~ Royal Robbins, montañero legendario

"Sitúa al lector en el centro de l. a. acción a cada paso, igual que hizo Marco Polo cuando deliveryó italianos a China y, en mi opinión, mejor que Lowell Thomas en el polvo de Lawrence de Arabia..." - Joseph W. Bean, Maui Weekly, Hawaii
