You're most definitely looking for 1935 book My Country and My People (, W Gu Y W Mn), Ln Yŭtng ()...written in 1935 and still holds true today. Lin was fluent in English and wrote it in English, so it's not a translation.

Hi all -

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any Chinese travel literature, by which I mean travel literature written by Chinese people about China or elsewhere, not literature written by foreigners about China. Just typing in "Chinese Travel Literature" to amazon doesn't seem to get much. I'm trying to get familiar this genre and so I'm hoping to get some recommendations for translated things to read before I try to hack my way into Chinese-language stuff. I'm interested in all periods but especially modern/contemporary.

I've read:
1) "Inscribed Landscapes: An Anthology of Chinese Travel Literature"
2) "Visionary Journeys" by Xiaofei Tian
3) "Stick Out Your Tongue" and "Red Dust" by Ma Jian
4) "Soul Mountain" by Gao Xingjian
5) "Journey to the West" (I'm going to count this as travel literature)
6) Xuanzang's original "Journey to the Western Regions in the Great Tang Dynasty"
7) "Wolf Totem" by Jiang Rong (This is sort of travel literature)

I'm sure there's tons more in translation but I just don't know any names. Can anybody throw out titles of books that are travel literature? I'm taking a pretty broad definition of "travel literature" so anything that's related works.

thanks!
