Product Details

Praise

“In The Art of Patience: Seeking the Snow Leopard in Tibet,  the French writer Sylvain Tesson chronicles his rapturous journey through Tibet’s Chantang plateau with the wildlife photographer Vincent Munier. Tesson’s words, in a ravishing translation by Frank Wynne, paint pictures as vivid as any photograph.” The New York Times Book Review

“The Art of Patience is extraordinarily beautiful, a narrative of prose that flows with poetry, a long, last loving glance at the planet, a visit to the vital bedside of a living world determined to stay alive.” —Carl Safina, author of Becoming Wild: How Animals Learn to be Animals

“Beautifully written, beautifully translated, intensely moving and totally absorbing.” —Stanley Johnson, author of Where the Wild Things Were

“A wonderful evocation of waiting and watching for nature.” —Tim Birkhead, author of The Wisdom of Birds and Bird Sense
