The author and Mr Hayman, of the China Inland Mission, were kept "captive" by Chinese Communists for 18 months from 1934 to 1936. "When the reader is told that a conservative estimate of our wanderings is 6,000 miles (mostly on foot), in the provinces of Kweichow, Szechwan, Hupeh, Hunan and Yunnan, and that we were billeted in over 300 houses, he will realise that it has not always been possible to give a strict chronological order of occurrences." - from the Foreword.; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall.
