My Land and My People: The Original Autobiography of His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet : Written by the Dalai Lama as a young man in exile, this dignified testament re-creates the miraculous search that identified him as the reincarnated leader of his country. It paints a rare, intimate portrait of Tibetan Buddhism-a way of life that would end with a terrifying foreign invasion surpassing sanity and reason, and it reveals the evolution of a man from a gentle monk to a world leader, one struggling to this day to free his country . . . one able to touch our hearts with the goodness that makes him one of the most beloved men of our time.
