Alexander Csoma De Koros 1784-1842 : The Hungarian Who Walked to Heaven, Paperback

Alexander Csoma De Koros 1784-1842 : The Hungarian Who Walked to Heaven Paperback

Part of the Short Lives S. series

Description

In 1819 Alexander Csoma de Koros, a Hungarian scholar, set off on a 30-year odyssey in search of his own identity, or rather of the origins of the Magyar people.

He ended up in Ladakh, where, through a bizane sequence of events, he found himself decoding the mysteries of Tibetan culture for the British government.

The desire to travel, as Edward Fox so deftly illustrates, can be a terrible burden on the soul.
