TRAVEL. "Cathay was the ultimate Land Beyond-a realm of myth and rumor, of fabulous wealth and stunning cruelty-and it has lured travelers from the West since the time of Marco Polo. Following in their footsteps, Bordewich set out in search of legendary Cathay, and what he discoverd is a China that the Communisit government has done its best to erase for forty years. The result is CATHAY, an equisitely realized account of one man's pilgrimage into China's forbidden past. " Two-page map frontispiece.
