Seven Years in Tibet (1997)
In the autumn of 1939, Heinrich Harrer, the famous Austrian mountaineer, and his countryman Peter Aufschnaiter, set out to climb Nanga Parbat, one of the highest peaks in the Himalayas. The self-centered Harrer, whose sole pre-occupation was the achievement of fame and glory, would experience an emotional awakening on his fantastic journey that would take him from the heights of conquests to the depths of internment in a British prisoner-of-war camp, then from escape and a harrowing two-year trek through the Himalayas to the mysterious Tibetan city of Lhasa. As a stranger in a strange land where few westerners have ever visited, Harrer was befriended by the young Dalai Lama, and was asked to tutor the religious leader in English, geography and the ways of the Western world. He would eventually spend seven years in Tibet, during a period of tremendous political upheaval in that country, graced with friendship and the spiritual enlightenment of the young Dalai Lama.

War Of The Buttons (1994)
In a quiet corner of South West Ireland lies a wide stretch of tidal water. On opposite sides of the water nestle the villages of Ballydowse and Carrickdowse: sleepy places which wake from the sound of the fishermen at their nets, the swish of wash fluttering in the breeze, and reassuringly, unmistakably, to the crescendo of children on their way to school. Large and small, tough and timid, buttoned up from head to toe, they tumble from their homes into the streets. But all is not quite as it seems. For an undeclared war exists between the Carricks and the Ballys and, though many of the townsfolk don''t know it yet, battle lines have already been drawn. On one side stands the leader of the Ballys, Fergus, and his crew of loyal followers. Set against them is the head of the Carricks, Geronimo, and his gang. In the utterly serious world of childhood, a rivalry flourishes that will send ripples through two communities before it is over.
