This old book with a copyright date of 1985 but recently updated to 1998 is a fascinating and adventurous today as it was when I first read it a year ago. His very essence and passion in his tales of a true adventurer is written within ever page----even if you have never been there his descriptive "folksy" prose that reminds me of Earnest Hemingway books in many ways such as the way he paints a picture by the use of words--one can almost visualize it. His comments add color and help to define many of these places of both past and present history as well as the associated legends. It is a very informative, educational as well as entertaining book to read. It is hard to lay this book aside--nothing in his books is melodramatic---he actually had to have experienced first hand everything he expresses --well almost everything. He mentions his encounters with very exotic and exciting females along the paths he travels but never tells one what happened---instead he expresses he's on treks and explorations later on he relates some brief romantic encounters.

Personally, I have never been to some of these places he describes but they come alive in his books as if one was there with him experiencing the trials and tribulations as he rides freight trains through out India as well as hitching rides along various destinations he travels while in country on a shoe string budget! Read and enjoy high adventure from this dare-devil of sorts as he treks through freezing mountain passes in Southeast Asia in search of the "Yeti" and searches for "secret societies" in Tibet such as the "Great White Brotherhood' as well as its underground "hidden cities"!

The philosophical aspect he describes thru his interaction with the people along the way is memorial! He goes into the various histories of many of the religions, myths, customs and describes their viewpoints from a Western prospective. His common sense comments and inserts liven -up the book as well as add "depth" to the reader--after all he covers a lot of lost cities, towns and countries. Childress ask of the readers some very profound questions that engage the reader to do some "critical thinking" along the way--like questions that begin with --"WHAT IFS". A very unique book full of insight and knowledge that can only be obtained from having lived it!

It is a shame some of these negative reviews about this book are perhaps do to those reviewers lack of knowledge or empirical experiences in explorations and life. This is not meant to be a reference book or a science book although he mentions some very interesting knowledge that Western medicine does not know like a cure for hepatitis. Or the method Tibetan doctors normally diagnosis patients by listening to what they say are twelve pulses coming from organs of the body, six on each wrist, each coming from a different organ. That is "very old ancient" Knowledge only found in some parts of Asia folks---this I know from personal experiences.

This book along with the others he has written will some day be a "classic". If the reader attempts to scan it then much may be missed--especially with all the foreign names of the various cities he cites!

Only about 10 percent of this book is about lost cities. About 80 percent is about Childress’s travels through China, Central Asia, and India: his meals, lodgings, transportation, people whom he met, etc. A better title for this book is My Journey Through China, Central Asia, and India. I bought this book to read about lost cities, not Childress’s travels. Needless to say, I was highly disappointed.

I have most of the "Lost City" series in paperback but am rereading them through the Kindle app on my I Pad. David is very knowledgable and can really tell a good story. These are great books for all us "Non Academics" out there!

I have several of the Lost City series books by David. The others that I have read are both a travel guide and an account of the lost cities he encountered. They were well written. However, this book does still have his travel adventures, but is lacking in the lost cities. Very few entries are refered to with the lost cities. David is not an archologist. He does, however, describe what he sees very well. It is just that this book doesn't have much to describe. If you are looking for a book of facts, this is not the one to buy. It is entertaining.

I wasn't really impressed with this book. In fact, I have removed the rest of the series from my wish list. Maybe I was expecting a travelogue-type account. It was more the ramblings of a tourist. The editing was extremely sloppy. There had to have been a typo on at least every other page. For some that's not a problem, but for me personally, it grated!
