Vanishing Tracks: Four Years Among the Snow Leopards of Nepal
by Darla Hillard
This is the extraordinary account of the first scientific expedition to radio-collar and study the rare, elusive snow leopard in its natural habitat. It is also a story of love and high adventure that provides a fascinating, affecting profile of a people inhabiting one of the most isolated and inhospitable regions in the world—the Kanjiroba Himal of western Nepal.
