Average Rating:
Rate this:
Kundun is a story of reincarnation, coronation, heartbreaking exile, and finally, the tenacious efforts of a holy man to save a nation and its people.

This is the first work to focus on the Dalai Lama's family -- his parents, four brothers, and two sisters. Particularly compelling are Mary Craig's portraits of the Dalai Lama's siblings, who have negotiated with China on behalf of their country, enlisted the aid of international allies to spearhead Tibetan Resistance, and worked tirelessly to help thousands of sick and starving refugee children.
