Michel Peissel, Tibet Scholar and Adventurer, Dies at 74

Mon, Oct 17, 2011
In 1989, he persuaded relatives and friends to join him on a river journey, alternately rowing and sailing a Viking longboat to the Black Sea from the Baltic Sea, a soggy trip that took 53 days. Mr. Peissel took great pride in his discoveries, like identifying a small purebred Tibetan horse, later named the Riwoche horse. And he boasted of his expedition to what he believed to be the elusive historical source of the Mekong River, accompanied by Chinese handlers. It resulted in his book “The Last Barbarians.” He called one of his last books, “Tibet: The Secret Continent,” his bible and a distillation of his knowledge. But Mr. Peissel would just as easily speak of the journey during which he lay with two broken legs in freezing winds, or the time his truck was stuck for days in mud and ice until a passing caravan of yaks pulled it free, or the day a part of his mule train dropped off a precipice and animals, tents and provisions were swept away in a roaring stream. “Travel with him was always a triumph over the impossible,” said one of his sons, Olivier, a sometime travel companion. Besides being a passionate Tibetologist — he had a doctorate in ethnology from the Sorbonne — Mr. Peissel was a restless man who pushed himself hard, who was as eager to communicate with peasants as with aristocrats and who was determined to avoid the routine in life, his friends and family said. In recent years, as his travel slowed, Mr. Peissel returned to painting. He had just completed his first children’s book about Tibet, illustrated with what he called “patented stroboscopic images.” On the day he died, he had tickets to travel to the Book Fair in Frankfurt to sell his latest book, said his wife, Roselyne Peissel. Born in Paris on Feb. 11, 1937, he liked to draw prehistoric animals as a child, and his boyhood heroes were explorers. Mr. Peissel was married first to Marie-Claire de Montaignac, with whom he had two sons, and then to Missy Allen, with whom he had a daughter and a son. He and Ms. Peissel also had a son. His five children survive him. (New York Times)
