Dorje Dolma presents YAK GIRL: Growing Up in the Remote Dolpo Region of Nepal

This unusual memoir of a spirited girl in the remote region of Nepal described in Peter Matthiessen's The Snow Leopard vividly portrays life in her primitive mountain village in the 80s, her struggles in bewildering Kathmandu, and her journey to America to receive life-saving surgery. An inspiring story of an indomitable spirit conquering all obstacles, a tale of a girl with a disability on her way to becoming a dynamic woman in a new world.
