    Murder in the High HimalayaMurder in the High Himalaya, a book by Jonathan Green about the brutal murder of a 17-year-old nun fleeing to India by Chinese border guards. Will be published in the Spring of 2010.

    Murder in the High Himalaya is the unforgettable account of the brutal killing of Kelsang Namtso—a seventeen-year-old Tibetan nun fleeing to India—by Chinese border guards. Witnessed by dozens of Western climbers, Kelsang’s death sparked an international debate over China’s savage oppression of Tibet. Adventure reporter Jonathan Green has gained rare entrance into this shadow-land at the rooftop of the world. In his affecting portrait of modern Tibet, Green raises enduring questions about morality and the lengths we go to achieve freedom.”
