HEDIN, Sven; LYON, F. H. (trans.)

Regular price $200.00 Sale

An exciting road-building expedition filled with constant mishaps, serious accidents, automobile breakdowns and fixes, immense distance, divergent ethnic groups, and brigands. Through reading Hedin's account, a reader understands the immensity of China, its lack of unity, Russian influence in the East, and what it was like to be a real explorer.
