    This book is not like typical Kingdon Ward Books and is very slow and even in occasions to sluggish to continue with a smooth flow The book basically roams around the Tibet China border around the River Yang Tze and tributaries, unlike the authors other books area of Burma Tibet border land The book however in other occasions gives the reader the touch of the Artist the author was in terms of his landscapes as I can quote from the last chapter XIV TWO THOUSAND MILES ON THE YANG TSE.High ranges of mountains rose on every hand, and the air was filled with the roar of cataracts and spinning whirlpools the river, sometimes broad and agitated, sometimes slinking along quietly, still and and deep, between closely investing hills, seemed to be gathering itself for a spring Whether calm and sedate or frolicking madly over the rocks, it was plainly working itself up for something better than we had yet seen Sunset behind us over this wonderful river was always a blaze of colour, but we were speeding away from it even while it beckoned us back to the wild west night with its moon lit sky filled the gorge with rippling silver which danced over the gurgling water So we drifted on past cities and mountains, past island temples and lovely pagodas, past orange groves and many a copse and spinney, dashing through rapids, whirling helplessly round in the big racing eddies which burst around and beneath us with the roar of approaching thunder till early on 7th September we reached K wei chow fu on the borders of Szechwan and Hupei, and saw before us the cliffs of Bellows Gorge towering to the sky, and the dark slit into which the river plunged Red life boats, like large sampans, are moored at every dangerous spot, ready to shoot out from their coves to the rescue of any unfortunate victim, but we do not require their aid nor do we pass any wrecks though there are any number of boats crawling up, or sometimes humming along with the up river breeze, under full sail, quite as fast as we are travelling down with the current The scenery is certainly fine, but it leaves us disappointed Perhaps we had expected too much True, we had never seen a river the like of this confined between such colossal cliffs, yet we had seen bigger rapids in unnavigable rivers, higher cliffs in mountain gorges, vaster ranges in the far west Overall I am feeling a little bit sorry for the book Anyway shall try again this one Also shall read other books on the same region.

    I m a bit surprised by this book I ve read anthologies of his writing, so definite culling went on It is his first wrote 25 and I ve another queued up so I have hope he left the ranting politics, religion, ethnicity etc etc aside and got on with plant hunting which was his life s calling and at which he was quite successful He is noted for his near lyricism at description of the natural world, so I m hoping he played to his strength and left jingoism behind Otherwise, I m sure someone has done another anthology
