9780349115146: River Dog: A Journey Down the Brahmaputra
Review:

A rare blend of humour, humanity and eloquent description. At its heart is Shand himself, an adventurer with strains of brilliant madness running through his veins ( LITERARY REVIEW)

Travel writing at its best. RIVER DOG takes us on a journey where the tempo never flags ( MAIL ON SUNDAY)

Old-fashioned, ripping stuff ( TLS)

Shand finds comic potential in every situation. Utterly readable ( HARPERS & QUEEN)

From the Publisher:

The Brahmaputra is one of the world's great rivers. Beginning as a tiny glacial stream in Western Tibet it flows through India and Bangladesh before gushing out into the Bay

of Bengal.

Unable to reach the northern part of the river due to Chinese intransigence, Mark Shand nonetheless set out to attempt what no foreigner had ever done: complete the huge journey from the unexplored jungles of the Indo-Tibet border to the largest river delta in the world.

RIVER DOG is a chronicle of that journey, a remarkable story encompassing sublime landscapes - in Assam where the River begins to broaden into its full majesty - and rather odd encounters - including a bizarre group of identical-looking monks in Majuli (the largest river island in the world). But it is also a celebration -- of a river that flows with mystery and legend, the men who have set out to discover it and a rather charming canine travelling companion called Bhaiti.

Descripción Little, Brown Book Group, 2003. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Birthplace of legends, the mighty Braqhmapurta River begins its jounary as a tiny glacial stream high on the desolate plateau of weastern Tibet; it sweeps 1,800 miles through three countries, to end its jounery, 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 advance." Lively and evocative, it is a marvelous account of an epic jounery and a touching portrait of the friendship between a traveler and his dog.
