A very amusing autobiographical tale of the author, who as the caravan leader and native guide to many European travellers, roamed the mountains and plains of Ladakh, Tibet and Central Asia. Due to his extensive travels, Galwan attained a somewhat legendary reputation during his life time. Along with the details of his birth and early life, this book gives the descriptions of his travels with people like F.E. Younghusband, Lord Dunnmore, Major Roche, Phelps, Church, Littledale, etc. The book is written in the kind of English that the author spoke: grammatically incorrect, but at no loss of information. Through­out the narrative the reader will find vivid portrayals of camp life, caravan logistics, anecdotes from daily life, details of routes travelled, notices of hunts and chases, etc. This book is a reprint of the 1923 edition.
