"Home to many mountains, including the highest point on the planet, Tibet is sometimes called "The Roof of the World." Despite Tibet's official status as a part of China, the country's people widely consider it to be an independent nation. Readers will trace Tibet's long history to discover how this conflict came to be. Along the way, they will find out how Tibet's people live, how the region is governed, and much more. They will also get a close-up look at its beautiful landscapes and diverse wildlife."
