Forgotten Kingdom

( Among the Nakhis of Likiang )


By Peter Goullart, with a new preface by Jim Goodman.

The Author was brought up in the Orient and spent most of his life there. This book describes his years in the ancient forgotten Chinese kingdom of Nakhi (Naxi) in Yunnan, by the Tibetan border, where, as a representative of the Chinese Industrial Co-operatives, he really mixed with the people.

" This is a book about paradise by a man who lived there for nine years. It it not easy to write a good book about paradise, but people are Mr Goullar's forte, and when he mixes up with the Nakhi he delivers us up to his idyll. Likiang, itself, its sunlight and its flowers and its rushing waters, its wine shops and caravans, its glints of danger, its swagger and its happy laughter, is really here" ( The Time Literary Supplement).
