Told in the first-person and accompanied by photographs from family archives, this autobiography follows Diki Tsering, a poor girl born in 1901, the Year of the Ox, to a peasant family, who eventually marries at age sixteen and gives birth to the future H.H. Dalai Lama. The story is told chronologically, giving readers a personal look at His Holiness as a small child. It tells of his personality and upbringing, and what it's like for a mother to watch her son become one of the most recognized faces in the world. Her story ends in 1959 with her chronicle of the Chinese invasion of Tibet and the family's escape and eventual exile.
