Synopsis: Sir Reginald Fleming Johnston (1874-1938) was a colonial administrator and oriental scholar. He travelled extensively in the Far East and developed a deep interest in Chinese culture and religion. His fourteen-year posting to Weihaiwei, a quiet naval base, allowed him to travel to places not usually visited by Europeans, and to begin writing. In 1906 he spent six months travelling across China to Burma, publishing this illustrated account of his arduous journey in 1908. In it he comments on the economic and political state of China, but the book's main theme is the beauty of the country and the character of its people. His understanding of the language, religion and culture make this a valuable description of Chinese society at the beginning of the twentieth century. Johnston's Lion and Dragon in Northern China (1910) and Twilight in the Forbidden City (1934) are also reprinted in this series.

Book Description: Colonial administrator and scholar Reginald Fleming Johnston (1874-1938) travelled widely in the Far East, and came to deeply appreciate Chinese culture. This 1908 account of a six-month journey across China to Burma is a valuable description of Chinese society at the beginning of the twentieth century.
