The Snow Leopard Overview

The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen is a first-hand account of the author’s trip through the Himalayas with biologist Dr. George Schaller, in search of the elusive snow leopard. Schaller is also obsessed with finding a bharal, a rare blue sheep that is a mix between a traditional sheep and a goat. Unfavorable weather conditions make the trip treacherous, but things take a better turn when they find several herds of bharal. Matthiessen regards this trip as a spiritual journey that will help him deal with the death of his wife. He soon returns home to his family as Schaller stays on Crystal Mountain; where he sends confirmation of an encounter with a snow leopard.
