Inner Asia, with its towering mountain ranges and seemingly unending deserts and steppes, has always been an endless lure to the explorer and traveller. This work compiles invaluable records and a mine of information collected by the remarkable expedition conducted for five years through the various countries of Central Asia. It opens for the scientific world new knowledge of the history and contemporary life of that region of the Roof of the world which is of deep interest geographically and sociologically. "From Tibet, Roerich brings back a scientific picture of the life and civilizations of the high plateau. The exclusive feature of Roerich's study is the strong arguments in justification of the theory concerning ancient civilization of the nomads whose territory extended from the Gobi desert and the border of Korea to the lower Danube and the Carpathian mountains. On the uplands of Tibet and in the country of the trans-Himalayas, the expedition carefully studied and photographed many hitherto unknown monuments. "Following in the footsteps of his famous mystic father, Nicholas, George Roerich has faithfully recorded his visits to the Buddhist monasteries which constitute an inestimable treasure for the study of the region. The pictorial record of land and peoples of the inner Asia and an extensive collection of ethnographical and linguistic material represents a fascinating contribution of the first order in the understanding of these lost civilizations. Printed Pages: 524 with maps, figures and plates.
