"I knew nothing of Yeshe Tsogyal before reading this novel. Now I'm enthralled by her. This highly respectful depiction of the life of this ardent early Tibetan Buddhist practitioner, has made a big impact on me as a woman always eager to read about the lives of conscious women of integrity throughout the ages. Such stories are extremely rare, especially told, as this is, with such respect and honoring, yet without sacrificing vivid color and drama. This is by no means a dry tract, either. Yeshe Tsogyal led, it would appear from PRINCESS OF WISDOM, a remarkable life...."

"I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway. I knew nothing of Buddhism or Tibetan people. The story of Tibetan Princess Yeshe Tsogyal was an interesting read. I couldn't put the book down. I hope this book will have a sequel. I can't wait to see what else Mrs. Paldon writes."

Warriors of 8th century Tibet are the most powerful force in Asia. Tibet's Emperor, Trisong Detsen, strives to expand his empire and establish Buddhism in Tibet. Potent forces oppose him.
In this time of struggle Princess Tsogyal gallops her horse free as the wind in the Yarlung Valley below high snow-capped mountains.
Tsogyal has a dream. Yet, if she wishes to follow it, she must leave her privileged life as a royal princess and embark on a path of danger and the unknown.
Within these pages her remarkable story is brought to life.
A Buddhist fiction novel.
"This book is filled with adventure. The story of this book is really interesting and caught my attention from the beginning to the end. I love how the characters feel like real people instead of fictional characters. Throughout the book I smiled, laughed, and held my breath to see what would happen next. I loved the mixture of horses, archery, and 8th century Asia!"
