Beyond Seven Years in Tibet

Heinrich Harrer


Beyond Seven Years in Tibet is the autobiographys of Heinrich Harrer, traveller, explorer and mountaineer who led one of the most extraordinary lives of the twentieth century. He famously spent Seven Years in Tibet (made into the film in 1997 starring Brad Pitt as Harrer himself) and was tutor, mentor and a lifelong friend of the Dalai Lama.

Heinrich Harrer made the first ascent of the notorious North Face of the Eiger in 1938 (told in his book The White Spider). The Eigerwand had been a scene of carnage in the years preceding Harrer's success - an achievement partly overshadowed by the perennial debate over the extent to which the climbers were 'sponsored' by the Nazis.

In this dramatic autobiography he brings to life all of his adventures, from the early days of climbing in the Alps, through his time in Tibet, to his later expeditions including exploring the Congo with the King of Belgium and travels to remote parts of Asia, South America and Africa.
