    1. Gill Winters captures the spirit of McLeod Ganj perfectly and I was transported back to my own trip there in November 2012 as part of Australia Tibet Council's annual Insight Tour through the pages of A Yeti In The Library. A lovely read and sympathetic portrayal of the Tibetan people's struggle for survival and freedom.As I write this review in mid-April 2013, the self-immolation toll has risen to a heartbreaking 115 and still the world remains silent.
