Leaving Mother Lake: A Girlhood at the Edge of the World

Little, Brown, 2007/09/03 - 304 ページ
The haunting memoir of a girl growing up in the Moso country in the Himalayas--a unique matrilineal society. But even in this land of women, familial tension is eternal. Namu is a strong-willed daughter, and conflicts between her and her rebellious mother lead her to break the taboo that holds the Moso world together--she leaves her mother's house.
