IN THE FORBIDDEN LAND

Times: "The ordinary reader will be struck with the portraits, which show that in a very few weeks he must

have endured a lifetime of concentrated misery. Other travellers, no doubt, have gone further, but none who have escaped with their lives have fared worse.... Mr. Landor tells a plain and manly tale, without affectation or bravado. It is a book, certainly, that will be read with interest and excitement."

Athen\u00e6um: "The account he has written of his travels and adventures is vivid and often fascinating. His
frequent notices of curious customs are full of interest, and numerous illustrations from photographs or
sketches taken on the spot render this one of the most attractive records of travel published recently."
Guardian: "Life, according to Mr. Landor, has 'barely a dull moment,' and the gloomiest of us will admit that
this is at least true of that part of life which may be devoted to the reading of his latest book."
World: "He has contrived, even in circumstances of cruel disadvantage, to present a wonderfully minute and

impressive series of pictures of the life, manners, and customs of the Tibetans. No less powerful and vivid are
his descriptions of the scenery and natural phenomena of the Forbidden Land, which are reinforced by an
ample series of illustrations that attain a high standard of artistic excellence. Mr. Landor's bitter experiences
have had at least the advantage of providing him with material for the most absorbing travel book produced
within recent times."

Daily Telegraph: "Mr. Landor's story is one of the most extraordinary tales of modern times, yet even the
most sceptical reader will admire the vigour with which it is told, and the endurance with which the explorer
and his faithful servants bore up against their savage captors."
Standard: "The book fascinates ... The verbal pictures it gives are extremely vivid, and the effect of them is

greatly heightened by the numerous drawings and photographs by the author. Mr. Landor is an artist as well as
traveller and writer, and he knows how to use his pencil and brush to emphasise his letter-press. Whatever
may be said of the wisdom of his enterprises, his book is certainly a remarkable contribution to the literature
of modern travel."

Daily News: "The great library of travel in the East has not received for many a year a more important
addition than this bright, picturesque, and instructive volume."
Daily Chronicle: "Mr. Landor is an artist as well as a writer, and this handsome volume is most lavishly

illustrated with sketches and photographs. Apart from its intense interest as a story of stirring adventure, the book is a valuable storehouse of information on Southern Tibet and its people, and on the little known Indian district of Northern Kumaon. This is surely a record of devotion to geographical science such as no previous explorer has been able to show."
