Get the story behind Sienna Craig’s fascinating Wisdom book, Horses Like Lightning: A Story of Passage Through the Himalayas — which Pico Iyer described as “a singular dance of innocence and experience” — in this new, in-depth profile/interview with Vermont’s Valley News.
“Craig writes about her personal experiences in Mustang, but also delves into the province’s troubled history and into how life in Mustang is changing with the encroachment of modern life. More than anything, Horses Like Lightning is an account of the making of an anthropologist.”
Quite right. In the book, Craig examines not just the “horse culture” of Nepal, but also, herself. The result is a book that defies categorization — part cultural exploration, part travel adventure, part memoir — with even some true-life romance. Read more about it here.
Our friends in the area might also note that Sienna will be reading from and discussing Horses Like Lightning at Hanover, Vermont”s Howe Library on Monday, Jan. 26, at 7 p.m. For more information call (603) 643-4120.
