About The Book
“Barbara Scot gives us the Nepal she saw, touched, visited with a feminist’s respect for difference. Hers is a tale of sharing, and we are privileged to see through her eyes, understand through her exquisite sensibility.” — Margaret Randall
“This provocative book deserves attention from anyone interested in cross-cultural communication and the complex issues of development work.” — Yoga Journal
“Scot’s year in Nepal was extraordinary. What she discovered about herself, about Nepal and the Nepalis themselves is beautifully told.” — Seattle Times
“While Scot never sugarcoats the hardships, she fulfills two of the travel writer’s most important tasks: evoking a deep sense of place and instilling in readers a desire to go there.” — Booklist
The Violet Shyness of Their Eyes is a moving account of a Western woman’s transformative sojourn in Nepal. Barbara Scot demonstrates insight into cultural difference while confronting the complex issues of development work and the status of women in Nepal. In vivid descriptions of mountain climbs, moving stories of the Nepalis and the retelling of her personal memories, Scot challenges readers with women’s global struggles while nurturing a deep empathy and respect for the Nepali people. Scot updates her travels in this revised edition.
Barbara J. Scot is an avid climber, hiker and naturalist. She is the author of Prairie Reunion (Farrar, Strauss & Giroux), which received a New York Times Notable Book citation, and The Stations of Still Creek (Sierra Club Books). She lives on a houseboat near Portland, Oregon.
