Read full description of the books:Caught in a violent storm and blown far off their intended course, five American airmen--flying the dangerous Himalayan supply route known as "The Hump"--were forced to bail out just seconds before their plane ran out of fuel. To their astonishment, they found they had landed in the heart of Tibet. There they had to confront what, to them, seemed a bizarre--even alien--people. At the same time, they had to extricate themselves from the political turmoil that even then was raging around Tibet's right to be independent from China.
Now back in print, Lost in Tibet is an extraordinary story of high adventure that sheds light on the remarkable Tibetan people, just at the moment when they were coming to terms with a hostile outside world.
Read information about the authorRichard Starks is a former journalist, editor and publisher, and is now a full-time writer.
"I've written nine books so far, but sometimes feel I'm just getting started.
My latest book is a crime thriller, Money Doesn't Talk, It Kills (Prestwicke Publishing, 2014), which is now available as an ebook for Kindle and all other ereaders.
My other books include two more novels: a political thriller (published by PaperJacks Ltd.); and a financial thriller (published by McClelland and Stewart-Bantam Ltd.)
I've also written the novelization of a horror-movie script by the director David Cronenberg. And I've written for television.
My non-fiction books include a (fortunately short) economics book (published by Jame Lorimer & Co); and four book I've co-authored with Miriam Murcutt. These are:
Lost in Tibet (published by The Lyons Press; it tells the story of five US airmen who, in 1943, were forced to bail out of their plane over Tibet);
Along the River that Flows Uphill - from the Orinoco to the Amazon (published first by Haus Publishing and now also a Kindle ebook; it tells the story of a journey that Miriam Murcutt and I took along a strange river in Venezuela called the Casiquiare);
A Room with a Pew - sleeping our way through Spain's ancient monasteries (published by The Lyons Press; it tells the story of another journey we took, this time through Spain, where we stayed exclusively in ancient monasteries; and
Greenland for $1.99 (published by Prestwicke Publishing as a Kindle ebook; it gives an account of journey we made inside the Arctic Circle)."
