Australian-born foreign correspondent George Ernest Morrison (1862-1920) became a legend in his lifetime for his brilliant dispatches from Peking, published in he Times, and for his unique influence on the course of Chinese diplomacy. When Morrison first arrived in China in 1894, he set out on what he described as "a quiet journey across China to Burma". Dressed as a Chinese and engaging guides and servants as needed, he travelled by riverboat, sedan chair, mule, pony, and mostly on foot, across the largely unexplored terrain. In this book, Morrison describes his journey with the same vivid and precise vision that would later make him world-famous.
