From her earliest days as the daughter of a Forest Officer in India, Diana Shipton acquired a taste for adventure and a love of remote places. When her husband was appointed British Consul-General in Turkestan in 1946, she spent two years in Kashgar with him, traveling and recording in vivid detail the domestic life and diplomatic activities of this remote outpost. In The Antique Land, Diana Shipton's keen observations of local customs and descriptions of the frequent travels she and her husband undertook are beautifully complemented by a wide selection of photographs, maps, and line drawings.
