About this product
- DescriptionThis account of plant-hunter and explorer Frank Kingdon-Ward's 1933 expedition to the south-eastern corner of Tibet was as significant for his geographic revelations as it was for the wealth of plant species with which he returned and documented. On this journey, Kingdon-Ward reached as far as the Salween River, a particularly remote area of Tibet t previously kwn or mapped in the West. His lively descriptions of the grand mountain ranges he traversed, the hardships overcome and the plants, fauna and people he encountered are complemented by spectacular photographs. The recollection of such adventures as his sojourn in a remote Buddhist gompa, the frontier justice meted out to a suspected murderer and many other tales en route make this a gripping and informative read for the Tibetologist, botanist and armchair explorer alike.
