"But the Himalaya may have many visitors before that other Abode of Snow turns things topsy-turvy, if it ever do so; and these, I hope, may find my book of some service. It was not for them, however, that this volume was written, but for those who have never seen and may never see the Himalaya." Andrew Wilson’s account of his journey through the Himalayan Mountains invokes our imagination with stunning written imagery. He describes the area as more than just the terrain, it encompasses the culture, history, people and story of the place. His account was originally published in Blackwood’s Magazine. As a publication Blackwood’s was famous in Britain. The "Maga" as it was referred to, included content ranging from the poetic works of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, to horror stories that were said to influence authors like Dickens and even Edgar Allen Poe, to the first publication of Heart of Darkness, by Joseph Conrad. This volume was first published in 1886 by G.P. Putnam’s The Knickerbocker Press.
