From dust-jacket : “This is no ordidinary travel-book. It is the record of a remarkable journey across Asia (financed by M. André Citroën) carried out during 1931-32 by a small party of Frenchmen and one American – the first attempt made to cross practically the hole Continent of Asia on motor vehicles equipped with caterpillar-tracks, and the only endeavour ever made to penetrate the Himalaya on any form of motor car.”
