Noon Edition

Author of "Pioneer in Tibet", Douglas Wissing

Bloomington resident Douglas Wissing has written for many publications including The New York Times, the Washington Post, and National Geographic Traveler. Wissing's lifelong fascination with Tibet led him to write "Pioneer in Tibet: The Life and Perils of Dr. Albert Shelton" about the unusual connection between Tibet and Albert Shelton's home state of Indiana.

Researching the book, Wissing traveled the length of the Himalayas from northern Yunnan across Tibet, Nepal and India to the range's terminus on the Afghani-Pakistan border.

He spoke with Shana Ritter.
