Walking Across Mongolia & China

The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom

Slavomir Rawicz   Lyons Press, 1997 (orig pub 1956)

Shivering and staggering, this group of escapees from a Siberian gulag make their way across Mongolia and China, south through Nepal and across the Himalayas to India.  The journey takes years and the hardships defy comprehension.  An inspiring read for anyone who thinks you need high-tech gear to walk long distances.
