Detailed Product Description
London, Hodder and Stoughton, 1950, 1st edition. 219 pp, 23 b/w photos. Ex Lib (Army Central Library) hardcover with no dust jacket and the usual library marks and wear. Very Good reading copy.

Travels in Kashgar and Central Asia with Eric Shipton, her husband, who was the last British consul there. Scarcer than most of Eric's books. The author, the wife of famous explorer and mountaineer Eric Shipton (who participated in five Everest expeditions), describes her six years in Kashgar and Sinkiang, the remote western province of China, in central Asia north of Tibet.

This book seems to be scarcer than any of her husband's books. [Robinson 245] "The book is a record of her gradual absorption into the rarefied life of Chinese Turkestan."
