9780140121520: Beyond Lion Rock: The Story of Cathay Pacific Airways

In post-war Hong Kong, two men had a dream of the skies. In 1946, Roy Farrel and Syd de Kantzow set up the first post-war supply route across the Himalayas in their battered DC3, battling against danger, discomfort, civil war and hijacking. This is the story of Cathay Pacific.

About the Author:

Gavin Young (1929-2001) was a journalist, writer, and briefly a member of MI6. As a journalist, he was most associated with the Observer, being in the words of Mark Frankland's obituary 'a star foreign correspondent'. When disenchantment with journalism set in he turned to the writing of books. The two most famous ones are Slow Boats to China and its sequel Slow Boats Home . He himself had a particular affection for two later books In Search of Conrad (winner of the Thomas Cook Book Award) and A Wavering Grace. These and Beyond Lion Rock , From Sea to Shining Sea , Return to the Marshes and Worlds Apart are all being reissued in Faber Finds.
