"Erik Mueggler has given us a book about the earth, and it is an exquisite and evocativetext.I have eagerly begun the process of recommending it widelyto scholars . . . with passions every bit as diverse as thesubject matter of this beautifully crafted narrative."--Thomas S.

From the Inside Flap

An absolutely breathtaking book -- in its thoughtfulness and imaginativeness, in the breadth and depth of the research which it entailed, in its geographical, cultural, and historical situatedness, and in its profound critical empathy for all of the key players. Beautifully and skillfully written. Sydney White, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Asian Studies, and Women's Studies at Temple University
""The Paper Road" is an eloquent, even haunting narrative of the relationships between colonial explorers/scientists and their native collaborators that makes vivid the theme of 'colonial intimacy.' It speaks to scholars working on Chinese minorities and frontier relations, to historians of comparative colonialism, to experts on Tibet and Buddhism, and probably also simply to lovers of tales of mountains and exploration." Charlotte Furth, Professor Emerita of Chinese History, University of Southern California."
