An inspiring record of the Roerich Central Asiatic Expedition (1924-1928) to India, Sikkim, Little Tibet, Chinese Turkestan, Mongolia and Tibet.
Nicholas Roerich (1874-1947) is known first and foremost as a painter.His paintings, of which there are thousands around the world, explorethe mythic origins, the natural beauty, and the spiritual strivings ofhumanity and of the world. But Nicholas Roerich was as prolific a writer as he was a painter. He wrote books, poetry, and almost-daily essays on life and events (called Diary Leaves).
Many of these writings have been unavailable for decades. They willtherefore be new to many readers. It is our hope that bringing thesevolumes to light again will expand awareness of the vast range and depth of Roerich's interests and insights into human nature and culturalhistory.
