Description About the author
Frank Kingdon-Ward, the last of the great plant hunters, undertook 25 major expeditions over a period of nearly 50 years and collected and numbered more than 23,000 plants. Not only a plant hunter, he was one of the greatest of all Himalayan explorers, filling in what would otherwise remain to this day a blank space on the map. This volume is an anthology of Kingdon-Ward's best writing on his plant-hunting and geographical exploration in Himalaya. It balances the botanical side of Kingdon-Ward's activities with his interest in the geographical terrian where he worked, its birds, beasts, insects and its variegated inhabitants, not only Tibetan and Chinese, but also the hill tribes - Abors, Darus, Dulengs, Kachins, Lisus, Lutzus, Marus, Mishimis, Nungs and others - in whose life he took such an affectionate interest.
