A life with Alexandra David-Néel, Vol.2
The greatest explorer of the 20th century is a woman...
Alexandra was the first woman to enter the city of Lhasa in 1924 and celebrated her 100th birthday. Still dreaming of travelling through Europe and Russia, she began
yet a long and serene agony, watched over by Mary Magdalene. During these 17 days, the present and the past intermingle, from the Lhasa episode to her difficult childhood, including her discovery of the Guimet Museum in Paris where she spent countless hours studying Hinduism and Buddhism.
