Foreword by Dr. Jane Goodall DBE
An autobiographical account of how John Hare became involved in wild camel protection and the story of his early expeditions into the Mongolian Gobi and the Chinese Desert of Lop and the Gashun Gobi. He was the first foreigner to enter the area – a former nuclear test site – to study the wild camel for 45 years and what he encountered and the hardships he endured make a riveting and informative read. As well as wild camel study, John Hare and the team of Chinese scientists became the first expedition to reach the ancient Silk Road city of Lou Lan from the east and discovered the Silk Road outpost of Tu-ying. Lavishly illustrated with stunning photographs.
