ONE MAN CARAVAN

I found this thoroughly delightful, and although there have been so many books in the past two years covering exploration and travel across some of the sections traversed by young Fulton (Damascus to Bagdad and across the Syrian desert; from Rajputana and Punjab up into the Himalayas of Kashmir; through North West Province into forbidden Razmak; Afghanistan, back into India, Sumatra, Java, Malaya, Siam and China, crosses 2000 miles of China, then Japan and home). A sense of humor, a refusal to be baulked by mere rules and laws, curiosity, keen sense of observation and a vivid style combine to make this story of a remarkable trek by motorcycle, very good reading. The illustrations give somewhat a modernistic rotogravure Sunday edition effect, but the text is more substantial than that, although he makes no attempt to go behind the scenes and discuss economic and social problems. Good armchair adventure, exploration and travel for winter reading.
