4.0 out of 5 stars Grand old romp of derring do' chaps!, 27 Feb. 2011
By 
PHaire (Edinburgh, Scotland) - See all my reviews
A good story of cloak and dagger stuff in the 50s big game between India and China. Lots of stiff upper lips and sticky wickets in what is essentially a story of illegal entry into China on spying tasks, followed by incarceration by nasty Chinese and a thrilling escape over the mountains to freedom!
Not Shakespeare, but anyone into mountaineering or Chinese/Indian/British 20th century history should be interested.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enthralling yarn, 9 Mar. 2010
Sydney Wignall has penned an enthralling and exciting tale of adventure, danger and intrigue in the best traditions of the spy novelist - but this is a true story and proves that reality can be more exciting than fiction. Wignall's journey into the Himalayas, capture, imprisonment and subsequent trek to freedom make compelling reading. If Tibet is ever to be free again stories such as this must be told.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enthralling read, 2 Oct. 2002
At the time when Edmund Hillary reaches the top of Everest, other intrepid expeditions are setting off to conquer and map unknown territories and mountains in the Himalayas. This true story gives insights into the life threatening challenges of the mountains and the politics of the Chinese and Indian governments at that time. You won't be able to stop reading how the author and his friends overcame the challenges thanks to their endurance, humour and beliefs.
