One of the most remarkable achievements of the author is to demonstrate how highly developed western Tibet had become before the advent of Buddhism in the seventh century CE. It appears that the trappings of early civilization extended well beyond locations recorded in Buddhist and Bon literature to encompass much of Tibet north and west of Lhasa.
