River Road to China: The Search for the Source of the Mekong, 1866-73
Milton Osborne. In the mid-19th century, no one in the Western world knew the full course--or indeed the source -- of the great Mekong River in Southeast Asia. In 1866 six Frenchmen set out on a dangerous mission to seek a trade route up the Mekong. During the two years that followed, they would journey through more than 4,000 miles of unmapped territory, from the tropical heat of the swamps of Vietnam & Cambodia to the bitter cold of the mountain ranges of southwestern China. Their historic expedition is the dramatic subject of this volume. This updated edition includes a new postscript by the author & more than 30 full-color illustrations by the expedition’s artist. “A stirring narrative account of one of the most celebrated expeditions in a great age of exploration.”
