From Calcutta to the snows of the Himalayas, Patrick French's Younghusband: The Last Great Imperial Adventurer pieces together the story of a man who embodies all the romance and folly of Britain's lost imperial dream.

Soldier, explorer, mystic, guru and spy, Francis Younghusband began his colonial career as a military adventurer and became a radical visionary who preached free love to his followers.

Patrick French's award-winning biography traces the unpredictable life of the maverick with the 'damned rum name', who singlehandedly led the 1904 British invasion of Tibet, discovered a new route from China to India, organized the first expeditions up Mount Everest and attempted to start a new world religion.

Discovered them at the start of their journey, perhaps after the lockdown. Easily found books and could even import if not available. Glad I chose

After my first purchase years ago, I've remained a loyal customer. They're the best in Nepal for books, and distance doesn't stop me from ordering from London.

This is my go-to place for all my 'quirky' reads. Never had any complaints about the books I've received from here. Also, they have the best collection of books ❤️
