Summary "On a quiet winter morning in 1937, several men on horseback rode into the tiny Tibetan village of Taktser. Disguised as peasants, the high lamas were on a secret mission--soon they would identify two-and-a-half-year-old Lhamo Thondup as the 14th reincarnation of the Dalai Lama. From his simple life in a mountain village to the thousand-room Potala Palace and his perilous escape into exile, this dramatic narrative follows the remakable childhood of the Dalai Lama "--Jacket.
