Description
"Ani Pachen has vivid memories of her life as a young girl in Tibet." "Her father, a powerful Khampa chieftain, died, and shortly after, the Chinese invaded Tibet. Ani Pachen relinquished her religious dreams and assumed her father's position, leading her people in the fight against the Chinese as one of only a handful of female resistance leaders. Her capture by the Chinese shortly after was only the beginning of twenty-one years of imprisonment and almost constant torture." "Several years after her release from prison, Ani Pachen finally realized her lifelong dream of meeting His Holiness the Dalai Lama. To hear her tell of their meeting is to realize the power of hope and prayer." "Through the writing of Adelaide Donnelley, Ani Pachen's story - the story of so many Tibetans - is brought to life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
