The Rose of Tibet book.
The Rose of Tibet book. In the forbidding mountains of a remote, hidden land, a goddess. Where Davidson really surprised me was by his ruthlessly subtle injection of superbly observed sharp humour into the story of high adventure in a strange land that he tells here so rivetingly well.

In Rose of Tibet Davidson adds a native teenage sidekick who has previously explored some of the route he needs to take across the mountains, and who gets our man out of numerous scrapes. The final denouement does not arrive, concerning the protagonist, in that he disappears, but the treasure he brought out in his final escape, while mostly unconscious on various travelling gurneys, is the subject of a reasonable conclusion. How did Lionel Davidson know so much about Tibet to create this fast action packed story? An adventure tale told with enough exotic detail to rankle all the "Orientalists".
