What's a woman to do when a Hindu god doesn't return her mountain? Would you risk your life by hugging a tree? How do you find a nameless young girl you first met (for five minutes) twenty-six years earlier? For environmental consciousness, should we trust the international bureaucrats or a Bhutanese farmer? Does the yeti illuminate the dark side of our souls? Why do we have an urge to "rid the land of demons"? How do "often frothy" phalluses protect Bhutanese villagers?

This is the Himalayan region as you've probably never imagined, full of memorable people, startling happenings, and unexpected moments of humanity and introspection, giddiness and solemnity, avarice and ambition.
