This is the story of a journey in which the explorer Robin Hanbury-Tenison and his wife Louella rode on horseback alongside the Great Wall of China. On a series of Chinese horses, and often spending up to 12 hours a day in the saddle, they covered a distance of a 1,000 miles through regions of China still closed to foreigners. In their leather chaps and floppy Camargue hats, they were objects of intense curiosity to the Chinese people whom they encountered in their three-and-a-half month journey through China. Escaping the roads and towns and industrial landscape, the Hanbury-Tenisons saw a China and its people that few foreigners have ever seen. The author also wrote "A Question of Survival", "A Pattern of Peoples", "The Rough with the Smooth", "White Horses over France" and "Fragile Eden".
