At long last an ebook version of my ‘The Ancient Tea Horse Road‘ lives and breathes, making the whole tale a little more convenient and giving some of those incredible geographies and personalities another opportunity to shine, charm, and threaten.
Of considerable importance (and in answer to many, many requests) the ebook has a map, so the journey our team took will make a little more sense and will be put into a context.
The ebook does contain images, but we are at work to create a more image intense version of the book including photographs of the route that were taken on the original journey as well as upon several more recent journeys along unchartered portions of the route.
The book retraces our team’s journey along the grand ‘route through the sky’; a route of memories, of mountains, and of course of that eternal Asian commodity, tea.
From the mist-laden subtropics of southern Yunnan up, and onto the Tibetan Plateau, the route known as Gya’lam (wide road) to Tibetans, Cha Ma Dao (Tea Horse Road), to the Han people, and ‘The Eternal Road’ to the legions of traders and muleteers, lives again.
The read is apparently enhanced with a cup(s) of tea at hand.
