The present book is the narrative of our work and travels. As in "Camps and Trails" I have written it entirely from the sportsman's standpoint and have purposely avoided scientific details which would prove uninteresting or wearisome to the general public. Full reports of the expedition's results will appear in due course in the Museum's scientific publications and to them I would refer those readers who wish further details of the Mongolian fauna.
Empress Dowager and Ch'ien Lung--The "hinterland"--An area of desolation--Our camp in the forest--Reeves's pheasant--The most beautiful Chinese deer--"Blood horns" as medicine--Goral--Animals and birds of the Tung Ling--A new method of catching trout--A forest fire--Native stupidity--Wanton destruction--China's great opportunity
