KIRKUS REVIEW

Tall travelers' tales of the Denis-Roosevelt expedition to make pictures after the success of Goona Goona and Dark Rapture. Here, told with high gusto and many flourishes, is the story of the expedition as it traveled to China, Tibet, India, Africa, and -- beyond their wildest dreams -- into the closed country of Nepal where their worries over their acceptability by the Maharajah topped any previous worries. There are serpents, tattooing, attacks by apes, angry holy mobs, religious ceremonies, the war in China, exotic people and other obstacles encountered en route. Breezy and entertaining escape reading plus.
