The Snow was up to his and each step was difficult. Finally the guide stopped. “We must turn back,” he said. Almost everyone turned around and followed the guide. But not Dorjee. He wasn’t about to go back. He wanted to go forward. To freedom. Since the Chinese Occupation of Tibet in the mid – 1950’s, hundreds of thousands of Tibetans have fled their beloved homeland in Search of freedom. Many are children and teens who risk imprisonment, injury, and death. What awaits them after their dangerous trek across the border? What will their life be like in exile? Using stories, interviews and photos from Birgit van de Wijer’s Child Exodus from Tibet, Naomi C. Rose portrays the compelling truth about these brave youth. A provocative and inspiring book!
