In the early 1900s a man named Edwin John Dingle embarked on a remarkable mapping expedition of China. Overcoming incredible odds and many dangerous situations that threatened his life, he succeeded in his mission, crossing areas of China where no Westerner had ever been before, and eventually reached Tibet. There, he became one of the first Westerners (if not the first) to study in a Tibetan monastery. Upon his eventual return to the West, he shared what he had learned in China and Tibet with others and came to be known to thousands as Ding Le Mei. Here, in his own words, is Edwin Dingle's account of that unbelievable journey.

Review: Across China on Foot

User Review  - Jobi George - Goodreads

(a comment, not review) A great expanse of view but taking it all in and make it to the last page is really an effort, a million mile walk, literally. It took really a long while before I finished reading it, few times I threw it aside though. Read full review

Didn't finish. Didn't find it too engaging. I preferred a book called 'An Australian in China' Read full review
