Jonathan Green wins 2011 Banff Mountain Book Competition award

This is the unforgettable account of the brutal killing of Kelsang Namtso, a 17-year-old Tibetan nun fleeing to India, by Chinese border guards. Witnessed by dozens of Western climbers, Kelsang's death sparked an international debate over China's savage oppression of Tibet. Adventure reporter Jonathan Green has gained rare entrance into this shadow-land at the rooftop of the world.
