Description
Information
We have long been bewitched by the legend of Shangri-La - a place of enchantment, romance and beauty in the East. Through the years it has been variously regarded as a strategic prize, a geographical puzzle or a hidden paradise. Explorers and adventurers have risked everything to understand this mysterious, wild place.

From the Royal Geographical Expedition of 1924 - which searched for a spectacular hidden waterfall - to those who followed fatally in their footsteps, McRae vividly brings to life the exploits and obsessions that have been fuelled by a region reluctant to give up its secrets.
