The Travel Classic by Edwin J. Dingle. With a New Foreword by Graham Earnshaw.
Edwin Dingle’s Across China on Foot is one of the great classics of China adventure writing, first published in 1911. Dingle was articulate, perceptive and an eccentric in the true British tradition. He ended up founding his own religion in the United States. Here, he recounts his adventures as he travels up the Yangtze River from Shanghai and then by foot southwest across some of China’s most wild and woolly territory to Burma.
