In 1897 Henry Savage Landor headed north from Bombay, India into uncharted territory to explore the magnificent mountains and wild glacial rivers of Tibet, trying to reach the Providence of Lhassa deep into the Forbidden Land without the benefit of maps, or previous knowledge of history or local customs.

Accompanied by a few coolies, hired locally, carrying the best photographic and scientific equipment money could buy, he went off onto what was to be the adventure of a lifetime. He battled with gangs of trail robbers, exchanged gunfire with the Tibetans and fell prisoner of the local warlords, all while charting and mapping the territory, taking photographs and recording scientific observations.

This book was last published in 1910. This is a reprint for those who enjoy reading adventures of yesteryears.
