Yak Butter Blues

Brandon Wilson

What does it take to survive? More than you could fathom. YAK BUTTER BLUES, an inspiring book of exploration, exposes the raw challenge of traveling deliberately, one-step-at-a-time on an incredible 1100-kilometer trek across the unforgiving Himalayan plains.
Join a determined man, woman and Sadhu, their Tibetan horse, as they set off to attempt to become the first Western couple to trek this ancient trail across the earth’s most remote corner.

What begins simply as an adventure quickly turns into so much more. Since Tibetans cannot walk this same Buddhist trail of faith from Lhasa to Kathmandu, they decide to hike it in their place – and to present symbolic prayer flags to the King of Nepal – if successful.
Their true story is a riveting tale of human endurance. It also provides a candid first-hand look at the lives of the Tibetan families who secreted them into their homes – and at a culture teetering on the edge of extinction. Little could prepare the couple for this ultimate test of resolve, faith… and very survival. With 27 author photos and maps.
