Book Description
This remarkable memoir transports us to the remote reaches of the Himalayas, to a place the Chinese call "the country of daughters," to the home of the Moso, a society in which women rule men. According to local tradition, marriage is considered a foreign practice; property is passed from mother to daughter; a matriarch oversees each family`s customs, rituals, and economies. In this culture a young girl enjoys extraordinary freedoms--but the impulsive, restless Namu is driven to leave her mother`s house, to venture out into the larger world, defying the tradition that holds Moso culture together. LEAVING MOTHER LAKE is a book filled with drama, strangeness, and beauty. Yet for all the exoticism, Namu`s story is a universal tale of mothers and daughters--the battles that drive them apart and the love that brings them back together.
