In "Among Warriors - A Martial Artist in Tibet", Pamela Logan frankly relates her travel experiences, documenting the emotional and physical challenges she faced. In addition, she faithfully and vividly describes a relatively unknown part of the world - very useful on my recent trip there! A must for karateka! Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 20 years ago. This is a great book. As a female karateka with an interest in Tibet and international travel I was impressed with the author's frankness, curiosity and determination. There was never a dull page or unnecessary word, much like the movements of the kata.

This book was well-packed and is in excellent condition. I loved the surprise of finding pressed leaves within the pages.

Dust jacket is mylar covered for protection. This book was well-packed and is in excellent condition.

Village in Tibet, China. Logan, Pamela (2004).

In the fortress that is Tibet no place is more remote than the province of Kham and no people more elusive than the Khampa, the fierce horsemen who for twenty-five years waged a relentless guerrilla war against the Chinese occupation. In Among Warriors, a different kind of warrior sets out to find the Khampa: Pamela Logan, an American with a Ph.D. in aerospace science, and a third-degree black belt in karate. Logan cycles, hitchhikes, and treks across the windswept plateaus and icy mountain passes of eastern Tibet. She drinks tea with monks and herdsmen, dodges Chinese police, and watches in awe as religious pilgrims inch their way toward Lhasa by prostrating themselves at every body length. Writing with vast sensory power and sympathy, Logan produces a gem that will captivate those interested in Buddhism, the martial arts, and one of the world's last inaccessible regions."[Logan] writes of getting to Lhasa with all the wistfulness of Chekhov's three sisters dreaming of Moscow."--New York Times Book Review

This is one of the greatest real world adventures, and one of the best books written about a real adventure, ever. The writing is muscular and colorful and engaging, the pace addictive. Logan's fields of knowledge, including a deep knowledge of martial arts and Tibetan culture and her burning need to meet the Khams, a fascinating warrior culture, give this book an intoxicating energy rather like Jules Verne's travel novels-but much better written and described. Even if you're not all that interested in Tibet or the Kham, you'll find this adventure amazing.

I really liked this book but refused it five stars because Pamela never spoke to the warriors which was the reason for the grant money in the first place and the title of the book.Very well written and being a serious mountain biker my self I could picture eveything that went on. All the side trips and very little complaining about the conditions in Tibet. Pamela describes the people with great affection and learns to put up with the endless red tape. Visits to local monasteries are well recorded along with the rebuilding of a Buddha statue wrecked by the Chinese. When Pamela started talking about her training in the martial arts I skipped it - it didn't really add to the story and besides I want to hear about Tibet and Warriors not someone droning on about martial arts, please Pamela stick to the story as you make the reader very hungry for it. I strongly suggest you buy this book. I got one through Amazon.com that had a Tibetan beer bottle label glued to one of the pages which is the reason I bought that copy! Very good read and Pamela has a new book out too that I haven't read but will soon it deals with the saving of Tibetan Art teasures and the rebuilding of an old monastery. Enjoy!

While there were lots of references to martial arts, very little was about the woman's training itself. It was mainly about her trip, the hardships and good times. I purchased it for the training aspect, not travel; although travel can be training in itself!
  • Samutilar
Pam Logan disappointed me because she never manages to deliver her book's promises. She bikes through China and Tibet, but offers few details about this type of travel; indeed, she spends half of the book on foot. She becomes obsessed by the Kham warrior people, but never actually enters their territory.
She is admired by at least two local men, but circumspectly never reveals the outcome of those relationships. She is stopped by police at the Tibetan border, and never reveals the subterfuge by which she successfully crosses.
And then, of course, there's all that claptrap about how travel is like performing karate exercises.
Real travel books reveal their author's strategy for surviving the awful and the exotic. Logan reveals only her longing to be back in California, kicking and slashing ghosts.

Her writing is not good enough. I never cared about her or her travels.
  • Samuhn
This is a great book. As a female karateka with an interest in Tibet and international travel I was impressed with the author's frankness, curiosity and determination. There was never a dull page or unnecessary word, much like the movements of the kata. She takes us all on the journey, and how fortunate are we to be along for the ride.

This has lots of interesting reading to offer any martial artist curious in the least about Tibet.
