Bruce Kirkby is a Canadian writer, photographer and adventurer. Blue Sky Kingdom is a warm and unforgettable portrait of a family letting go of the known world to encounter an unfamiliar one filled with rich possibilities and new understandings. We follow Bruce and his family’s remarkable three months journey, where they end up living amongst the Lamas of Zanskar Valley, a forgotten appendage of the ancient Tibetan empire, and one of the last places on earth where Himalayan Buddhism is still practiced freely in its original setting.
