About this book

Describes how in 1994, the author made history twice over - by discovering the source of one of the world's mightiest rivers, the Mekong, high in the ice-strewn fields of the Tibetan Plateau; and by finding a living fossil, the Riwoche horse, a previously unknown species which may prove to be a missing link in equine evolution.
