“It’s a rare blend of humor, humanity, and eloquent description. ” -- The Literary Review
From the Publisher
Birthplace of legends, the mighty Brahmaputra River begins its journey as a tiny glacial stream high on the desolate plateau of western Tibet; it sweeps 1,800 miles through three countries, to end its journey, as wide as a sea, in the Bay of Bengal. In River Dog,
celebrated travel writer Mark Shand chronicles his attempt to complete the “last great Asian adventure.” Lively and evocative, it is a marvelous account of an epic journey and a touching portrait of the friendship between a traveler and his dog. Mark Shand is the author of Travels on My Elephant,
which earned him the British Book Awards Travel Writer of the Year Award.
