China on the Lam PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

China on the Lam free pdf Bill Purves's three-month hike from Hong Kong to the borderlands of Mongolia took him deep into the heart of rural and small town China. Armed with just a rain poncho, tent flap and small backpack Purves deliberately avoided tourist spots or even towns larger than the smallest dot on the map, camping under bridges or staying with Chinese families - off the beaten track would be an understatement. Recorded in this book, the result is a China travel book like no other. Packed with anecdotal detail and fascinating observations, it captures the feel of the China largely unknown to outsiders, the China of the country's majority who live off the land. With a text supported by black and white photographs and an appendix on the practicalities of walking in China, CHINA ON A LAM is the ultimate companion for both the real and armchair traveller.
