In January 1935, the Vernay-Hopwood Chindwin Expedition departed from Rangoon to explore the Chindwin River valley on behalf of the American Museum of Natural History. The party traversed northern Burma, gathering biological specimens and ethnological artifacts for the museum.

This intriguing book includes documentation and photographs made during the journey as well as biographical narratives of its organizers, sponsors, and field scientists. The collected items, personal belongings, provisions, tools, and exchange goods carried by the expedition party tell the story of the participants' encounters with flora, fauna, landscapes, and people, including the "head-hunting Nagas." This account offers fascinating details of the expedition's itinerary, cross-cultural interactions, and exchanges.
