|Across China||By:Peter Jenkins||1986||Type: NF|
|Review : Readable interesting travel experiences, a little naive, a little dated|
|You get to experience 2 cultures for the price of one as you are reading about Asia through a North Americans eyes; maybe a 3rd element cos of the historical element ..this book was written 20 years ago. And a 4th cos it teaches you about mountaineers|
Bored by normal life after writing his walking across the US book. He jumps at the chance to cover a US mount Everest from Tibet expedition and in a time of government paramoia succeeds in getting permission to visit other parts of China incuding a yurt homestay in Inner Mongolia with his emigrated to US translator.
