Across China By:Peter Jenkins 1986 Type: NF
His story of The 1985 Tibet to Everest Expedtion and travels in Cnina and Mongolia
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

synopsis : 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.
