The Valley of Flowers
Natraj Publishers, 2003 - 330 pages
High in the Himalayan ranges in India is an enchanting valley. In 1931, Frank S Smythe -- mountaineer, explorer, botanist, romantic and much else -- chanced upon this colourful valley and named it the 'valley of flowers'. This book is an absorbing account of this picturesque valley that is visited by mountaineers from across the world. Complete with maps and colour photographs, the book is written in the sensitive and imaginative style associated with Smythe.
