Land of Pure Vision: The Sacred Geography of Tibet and the Himalaya

Abstract

David Zurick, Foundation Professor of Geography at Eastern Kentucky University, was this month’s featured speaker in our “Far Away Places” series on the evening of November 20, 2014 at Barnes & Noble Booksellers. He traveled to Tibet in the summer of 2013 in support of his new book and film. Along with cinematographer Chris Radcliffe, he completed the ritual pilgrimage around Mt. Kailash, crossing an 18,600-foot pass and spending nights in monasteries and pilgrim guesthouses.

His newest book Land of Pure Vision: The Sacred Geography of Tibet and the Himalaya has just been published by the University Press of Kentucky. Their film Sacred Geography: A Journey into the Heart of the Himalayas is in production.
