"It was not until after my return to Europe that the thought occurred to me of putting the note of my experiences in China into the shape of a book, which is now presented to the reader. The work makes no pretension to be anything more than a straightforward, unvarnished account of trips into very little known parts of China and Tibet." - from the author's preface. 

The Appendices comprise lists of birds, reptiles, fishes, and Lepidoptera collected by the author. Pratt was one of the earliest European botanical collectors in Western China, preceding E. H. Wilson and George Forrest.
