Among the Himalayas by L. A Waddell( Book )

20 editions published between 1899 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laurence Austine Waddell (1854-1938) spent twenty-five years as a medical officer in the colonial Indian Medical Service. Fascinated by the landscapes and cultures of Darjeeling and Tibet, and inspired by reports from British spies surveying the remote Himalayan valleys, Waddell studied local languages, and spent his leisure time researching and writing on Tibetan topics. His books The Buddhism of Tibet (1895) and Lhasa and its Mysteries (1905) are also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. This 1899 publication, illustrated with photographs and drawings, claims to describe 'the grandest part of the grandest mountains in the world', for the first time since Hooker (whose 1854 Himalayan Journals are also reissued), and anticipates today's trekking industry. Waddell's colourful account of jungles, snakes, glaciers, yaks, dizzying mountain ridges, rickety bamboo bridges, tribal peoples and unfamiliar food aims to 'bring home to the reader a whiff of the bracing breezes of the Himalayas'

Lepcha AK05( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lepcha inhabit the southern and eastern slopes of Mount Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas, primarily located in the states of Sikkim and West Bengal (Darjeeling District), India. Some Lepcha also live in Nepal and Bhutan. It is believed the Lepcha originally came from either Mongolia or Tibet. The Lepcha language is classified in the Tibeto-Burman family. The Lepcha adopted the Tibetan Buddhist religion. This collection on the Lepcha contains 13 documents that focus on the Lepcha in India and on the time period from the late 1800s up until ca. 1950. Except for Foning who is a native Lepcha and lived in the region from 1938 to 1984, all the documents are based on research conducted before 1953. The earliest works are an Risley's anthropometric study from 1886-1888 and Waddell's collection of songs from 1891. Gorer and Siiger have written the most complete monographs on the Lepcha. Gorer's traveling companion, Morris, has written a more popular account. In a series of articles translated from the German, Nebesky-Wojkowitz writes about hunting and fishing, legends, religious paraphernalia, and funerals. Jest also writes about Lepcha religion and Hermanns on Lepcha myths
