Categories: Coming of Age

What is Tibet? Where is Tibet? These are questions that many people have asked before. In the book “ Tibet: Culture on the Edge” by Phil Borges, can answer that question. This book doesn't really show the history with the Chinese but mostly it showed the climate change and how it impacted the developments of the Tibetans. The book starts with beautiful stunning images of Tibet. There are many amazing landscape
pictures. The text is fairly simple to follow and goes great with the images. In the book,there are a lot of religious images, lifestyle images, and geographic images of Tibet.This book gives the reader visual images of them being there themselves. They can imagine being in Tibet by just looking at these stunning images. Also the pictures are so peaceful and relaxing to view. Everybody would love this book, it doesn't matter about the age. Even young children would enjoy have just looking at the pictures.
