Commissioned by the Chinese to map a road through one of the most inhospitable regions in the world, Hedin set out on a journey that saw him become entangled in a bloody war for independence that was raging in the province. Struggling through the battle-scarred land, he encountered rebel fighters and bandits, was imprisoned and nearly executed. An enthralling account of drama and high adventure, The Trail of War is an extraordinary portrait of Central Asia and its people.

Book Description:

Classic travel accounts through Asia by the legendary Swedish geographer who located the roots of many of the continent's famed rivers, and became decorated worldwide for his writing and work with Asia's peoples.

About the Author:

Sven Hedin (1865-1952) was one of the world’s greatest explorers. His travels through Russia, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Central Asia, China and Tibet led to important discoveries and achievements: he produced the first detailed maps of vast parts of the Pamir Mountains, the Taklamakan Desert, Tibet, the Silk Road and the Himalayas. He was the first to unearth the ruins of ancient Buddhist cities in Chinese Central Asia and in 1899 he discovered the ancient Chinese garrison town of Lou-Lan in the Taklamakan. The many manuscripts he found there are of huge historical importance. His books, which include Through Asia, A Conquest of Tibet, A Journey through Persia and Mesopotamia, Transhimalaya and My Life as an Explorer have been excerpted, translated and published in dozens of languages throughout the world.

John Edmund Hare is a British classicist, philosopher, ethicist, and currently Noah Porter Professor of Philosophical Theology at Yale Divinity School. The author of over sixty articles in scholarly journals, Hare has worked on a wide range of topics, including ancient philosophy, and has been on the editorial boards of several academic journals, including The Journal of Religious Ethics, American Philosophical Quarterly, History of Philosophy Quarterly, and Ancient Philosophy, and currently serves on the boards of the Yale Center for Bioethics, Yale Center for Faith and Culture and Berkeley Divinity School.
