Overland through Asia

Overland through Asia by Thomas Wallace Knox

Overland through Asia by Thomas Wallace Knox is a captivating and informative travelogue detailing the author's journey through Asia in the late 19th century. Knox provides a detailed account of his experiences traveling by rail, horse-drawn carriage, and boat across rugged terrain and unfamiliar cultures.

The author's vivid descriptions of the landscapes, people, and customs he encounters along the way transport the reader to another time and place. Knox's keen observations and insights into the political and social conditions of the countries he visits add depth and perspective to his narrative.

While some may find Knox's occasional biases and outdated perspectives on race and gender unsettling, his overall storytelling is engaging and thought-provoking. Readers with an interest in travel writing, history, or Asian culture will find Overland through Asia to be a rewarding read.

Book Description:
By THOMAS W. KNOX. PREFACE. Fourteen years ago Major Perry McD. Collins traversed Northern Asia, and wrote an account, of his journey, entitled A Voyage Down the Amoor. With the exception of that volume no other work on this little known region has appeared from the pen of an American writer. In view of this fact, the author of Overland Through Asia indulges the hope that his book will not be considered a superfluous addition to the literature of his country. The journey herein recorded was undertaken partly as a pleasure trip, partly as a journalistic enterprise, and partly in the interest of the company that attempted to carry out the plans of Major Collins to make an electric connection between Europe and the United States by way of Asia and Bering's Straits.
