Abstract:

"In 1894, George Ernest Morrison started a journey which was to take him from Shanghai in the east, through the heartland of China and into Burma. Alone and dressed in Chinese clothes, but without speaking a word of the language, Morrison travelled by foot, sedan chair, mule and boat, several times nearly drowning. One hundred years later, Angus McDonald ... set out to follow him. Often travelling where no other Westerner has been for fifty years, McDonald found both change and, in some places, a way of life virtually unchanged since Morrison's time"--Back cover.
