A heartfelt story of one man’s struggle for Tibetan independence. Warriors of Tibet is a vivid portrait of a Tibetan Khampa warrior, Aten, and his people of Nyarong. He tells the history of his people, and relates how the peaceful lifestyle in Kham was shattered by the incursion and final domination of the Chinese government in the 1950’s. He tells of blood battles and the terrible suffering of his people, and finally the murder of his family and his escape across the Himalayas to Dharamsala in northern India. This book is essential reading for people involved with the Free Tibet movement.
