Riding The Iron Rooster

Book Description
The world seems to grow smaller every day. Travelers cross oceans and continents in the blink of an eye. But the world is not so small that there is no room left for adventure and discovery. In Riding The Iron Rooster Paul Theroux invites you to join him on the journey of a lifetimeó a journey in the grand romantic tradition.

Vowing to reach the other side of the world without jet lag, Theroux began his odyssey in London. He traveled by train across Europe, through the vast underbelly of Asia, and into the heart of Russia. But the crown jewel of his journey was China itself. Here is a magnificent land and an extraordinary people as you have never before known them: China by rail, as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of one of the most intrepid and insightful travel writers of our time
