Reseña del editor:

William Moorcroft was a veterinary surgeon in charge of the stables of the British East India Company and on the pretext of finding better breeds of horses made a pioneering journey from the heart of India up to the icy plateau of Central Asia. The other side of Moorcroft's efforts was that of a spy who looked to survey the probable friends and toes of India in the face of a Russian invasion. He started this journey from Kullu in the foothills of the Himalayan and it ended with his murder outside Kabul deep into Central Asia.During the course of his travels he stayed for 2 years in Ladakh and his account of this place is unmatched by later travelers. Moorcroft also wanted to open up the Central Asian markets to British good, and in his enthusiasm signed treaties in the name of the crown with local chiefs of the lawless tracts of Central Asia. In this book one finds details of almost everything that he saw, experienced and heard. The lands the people, the customs, the royalty, commercial potential, the flora and fauna, the river systems, the local religions. Moorcroft's account is not wanting in playing the role of being the eyes and ears in a foreign land. The journey took Moorcroft from the Punjab through to Bokhara via Ladakh, Kashmir, Peshawar, Kabul and Kunduz.
