About This Book

"The celebration here of traditional Ladakhi life induces exhilaration but also sadness, as if some half-remembered paradise known in another life had now been lost. So evocative is it that I felt -- I'm not sure what -- homesickness?" --Peter Matthiessen, from the Introduction

"Though full of stories and photographs of the Ladakhi way of life. [Ancient Futures] is much more than a travelogue; it is . . . an ecologue .... The Western industrial 'monoculture' that has infected and endangers the rich ancient culture of Ladakhi is the one that is endangering us, its progenitors, as well. A book that must be heeded." --Kirkpatrick Sale, The Nation

"A sensitive, thought-provoking account." --New York Review off Books

"An indispensable book for people who are trying to protect rural life." --Wendell Berry

"Everyone who cares about the future of this planet, about their children's future, and about the deterioration in the quality of life in our own society, should read [this book]." --The Guardian (England)

About The Author

Helena Norberg-Hodge, the first non-Ladakhi to become proficient in the language, lives in Ladakh for part of each year. The rest of the time she travels and lectures about the urgent lessons Ladakh has to offer the world.
