In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
It seemed like a good idea to Heather at the time: organise a challenging trek to raise funds for the education of young girls in Bhutan. Heather had walked through the Himalayas before, so how hard could it be on the trail to Lunana, Bhutan's most remote and inhospitable plateau? On the 240-kilometre trek across the roof of the world, she discovers that 'hard' doesn't even come close. Along with her friend Krista, likeminded lover of mountains and margaritas, Heather sets off into a landscape of savage, untamed beauty with a team of eccentric guides, an opportunistic dog and far too many horses. As they move deeper into these sacred mountains - where yetis are feared and only yaks feel truly at ease - they face blizzards, dodge avalanches and see their crew struck down by altitude sickness and snow blindness: trials and tribulations that could stop even the most experienced adventurer in their tracks.
Their reward is a rare glimpse of life in the last Shangri-La.
At its heart, this book is a love song to Bhutan and its people, an intimate portrait of the only remaining Buddhist kingdom of the Himalayas. YAK ON TRACK is a delightful story about losing yourself but not losing your way.
