"In the heyday of the sixties, during a seven-year stay in the Himalayas, Marilyn Stablein teaches herself how to not only cook a curry on a cow dung patty fire, but to master sadhu rituals like preparing chillums. Whether describing Mishra's bhang lassi shop, the government hash store, her meeting with cannabis guru Ganesh Baba, or a trek to a cave in Kashmir to view Lord Shiva's miraculous ice lingham, Stablein is an intrepid adventurer and humorous chronicler."

2.  TICKETLESS TRAVELER: The Dhobi Stories: These tales introduce Dhobi, a washerman who lives and travels between India and Nepal. At one time the men and women who washed clothes on the banks of the rivers were considered members of the lowest caste of untouchables. The caste system has now been abolished.
