Himalaya Bound follows a tribe of forest-dwelling nomads as they trek into the Indian Himalayas on their annual spring migration. This compelling true story offers an intimate glimpse into a rarely seen world – and the modern forces that threaten it. A great adventure and incisive work of literary journalism. (It would be good to emphasize that this is going to be a slide show featuring remarkable images of nomadic life in the jungles and mountains of north India).
Michael Benanav is a writer and photographer for The New York Times, Sierra Magazine, Geographical Magazine, Lonely Planet, and more. Himalaya Bound is his third book.
