"The author of this book was stationed in Western China when hostilities broke out between the Chinese and Tibetans on the border in 1918, and it devolved upon him to offer his services as mediator between the local leaders. His book is chiefly an account of the long and arduous journeys through remote and largely unknown regions necessitated by these negotiations, which led to the restoration of peace at the border."
