Book Review: Far Beyond the Garden Gate

Far Beyond the Garden Gate

Story of Alexandra David-Neel, who was the most famous woman in France in the 1920’s. She was the first Western woman to enter the forbidden capital of Tibet, Lhasa.

She was a self-taught Buddhist scholar and spoke Tibetan flawlessly. Born outside Paris in 1868, she had an irresistible wanderlust and was fascinated by railway lines.

Loved learning about Alexandra David-Neel!
