The Chiru of High Tibet is a true gripping story of how scientist George Schaller and four mountain men set out to save the chiru (antelope-like creatures who cannot survive captivity and who live on the high plains of Tibet) from near extinction. (from the publisher)

It's all about process, whether it's story building or housebuilding. That's why I love this story about a man who loves wood and has spent thirty years whittling his own house. He's not done, but he loves the process.
