Exiled for m China in 1933 and separated from his wife and children, Chiang Yee spent over 40 years away from his homeland. Adopting the name the Silent Traveller, he threw himself into his passions--writing, painting and poetry--and produced some of the most eveocative, unique and enduring travel books ever written. The Silent Traveller series began with this imaginative book on the Lake District, which was an immediate success on its first publication in the 1930s, selling out several reprints in a matter of months. It also caught the critics' attention, and was praised by one reviewer for providing 'an entirely new angle on the Lake scenery'. In words and pictures Chiang Yee gives a perspective on celebrated places such as Buttermere, Windermere and Grasmere that is as fresh and unusual today as it was when he first put pen and brush to paper.
