About This Book

In this facsimile reissue of the 1894 account of her 1889 travels in Tibet, Isabella Bishop (nee Bird) the already well known travel writer tells of her last visit to Asia. She travelled by horseback and used a tent, but went in some style from Sinigar to Ladakh. Descriptions of people she met and situations - some hair raising - she experienced include a focus on Christian missionaries and their simple way of life in places far remote from their fellows. Visits to Nubra, Leh were hazardous and the final chapter includes descriptions of the manners and customs of the area. With black-and-white drawings.
