In contrast to his other two titles, “Journey To The Jade Sea” was a bit of a letdown. His later writing clearly demonstrates that as a long-distance hiker he was both mentally and physically well prepared to be in the field, and had a thorough grasp of potential hazards. But in this story, more than once, he alludes to a lack of preparation and openly trusts the entire enterprise to blind luck for seemingly extended stretches of time. The reader suspects that he may have secretly undertaken the journey on a whim. But luckily for the author, the men he hired to accompany him, none of whom spoke his native tongue, all turn out to be trustworthy.
Despite my harsh sounding judgement, there is no question in my mind that for fans of John Hillaby’s writing the story remains an interesting read, as I found it to be.
