Description
In 1904 Alex Hosie, the British consul in Chengtu (now Chengdu), China, set out on a three month round-trip to Ning -Ching on the eastern border of Tibet. In addition to describing the perils of the journey, he gives a detailed account of the countryside and its flora and fauna. To the west of Ta-chien-lu (now Kangding) the people - their houses, clothing, food, language and religion - are to all intents and purposes Tibetan, and he provides a fascinating description of their customs and way of life.
