Something Hidden Behind the Ranges
A HIMALAYAN QUEST
BY DANIEL TAYLOR-IDESomething Hidden Behind the Ranges mixes travel, adventure, and nature writing in a gripping tale of the Himalaya, its peoples and its ecosystem. Since his childhood in India, Daniel Taylor-Ide has been fascinated with the mystery of the yeti, or abominable snowman. Throughout his life he has searched for clues of its existence. Along the way he has risked life and limb in remote mountain reaches, led a search for the elusive Himalayan tree bear (previously unknown in the west), established wilderness parks in both Nepal and China, and discovered traces of lost peoples in the mountains of Nepal. In this vivid page-turner -- featuring American explorers, government officials, and Nepalese royalty -- the author tells these stories and invites us to share in the life of a modern day explorer.
With humor and insight into the rapidly changing world of the Himalayan wilderness, Taylor-Ide takes the reader on a journey through the jungles and up the icy cliffs of the Himalaya, into the royal halls of the king of Nepal, and through the archives of the Smithsonian, to an amazing conclusion.
