This book tells the personal stories of more than 20 people living in Tibet. They have different occupations: Soldier, writer, entrepreneur, photographer, painter, scholar, musician, singer, teacher, doctor, balladeer, athlete, and so on. Some of them are young, some of them are old, and some have already passed away. They have lived different lives, but have one thing in common. They all once lived in Tibet and experienced the life and times of the period since the 1950s, an extraordinary period in their history. They not only observed these changes, but also participated in them. These true and touching stories will no doubt open a window for readers who are not familiar with this period of Tibet and are interested in knowing more about it.
