More than half of this book was written with no idea of publishing. According to the author the book was meant only to inform his wife of what he was doing, seeing and thinking during his journey made in search of sport and health. The book is therefore, without ornament or elaboration. The book is not only a record of facts, but also reflections, not merely of sport but also impressions, may be of interest, especially to those who love the Himalayas. The ethnological remarks which the author have included in this book may prove of some little value to future students.
