About the Author

Thanks to the generous financial support of the Spalding Trust, England, (as well as an earlier grant from the Shang Shung Institute, USA and Italy) I returned to northern and western Tibet in April of 1999, on what I call the Changthang Circuit Expedition. This expedition lasted until November and totaled 161 days in the field. Having so much time was most useful and I was able to meet or exceed all my research objectives. I also wish to express my gratitude to the provincial, prefectural, county, and township officals of the the Tibet Autonomous Region for their support and expertise.
