By: Frank Kingdom Ward
In 1914, the renowned British plant-collector and explorer, Kingdom-Ward, undertook an expedition of some eight month's duration along Burma's eastern frontier and across the headwaters of the Irawaddy River. Travel was mostly on foot, through some of the most rugged and inpenetrable terrain on earth; his legendary courage and endurance enabled him to prevail, despite significant impact on his health.
Kingdom-Ward's keen powers of observation result in an account rich in the details of this previously unknown territory, its flora, fauna and the anthropology of its tribal inhabitants. While primarily a scientific expedition, Kingdom-Ward's descriptions are, at times, lyrical as he described the majestic landscape through which he travelled.
First published in 1921 and previously long out of print, this work has been one of Kingdom-Ward's scarcest and most sought-after titles.
