Description
 
Drokpa is a stunning portrait of the nomads of the Tibetan Plateau and Himalaya.  Once widespread throughout the world, nomadic cultures are vanishing.  High and remote, the grazing lands of Tibet and adjoining areas of Bhutan, India and Nepal still support nomads and their livestock.  With evocative photographs and insightful text, the American range land ecologist Daniel Miller presents a visual record of these remarkable people who make a living moving with their animals in one of the harshest environments on earth.
Over a period of thirty years, Daniel Miller has worked with nomads in Bhutan, Nepal, and Tibet, taking photographs to document his research and journeys.  He has visited many remote regions, such as Dolpo and Mustang in Nepal, Merak-Sakten in eastern Bhutan, Ladakh in India, the Chang Tang in Northern Tibet and the grazing lands of Kham and Amdo in eastern Tibet.  Through this unparalleled perspective, Drokpa provides an incomparable commentary to our understanding of an incredible landscape and extraordinary culture.
