Throughout east Asia during the colonial period, the European colonizers were often troubled by the hot climate. To allow for escape and recovery, they built towns on mountainsides or high plateaus where the altitude made for a more comfortable climate. These "hill stations" are no longer European, but still provide an escape from the heat for the indigenous ruling classes. Crossette here chronicles her travels to hill stations around Asia.

Naipaul, V. S.  
India: A Million Mutinies Now

Publisher: New York: Viking, 1991..

Quarter black cloth, black paper-covered boards, gilt titles on spine, [v], 521 pp. Some soiling to edges (mostly top edge), bottom edges of boards fading, one corner bumped. DJ has light edge wear; in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "As Naipaul travels east, west, north, and south, his carefully structured journey begins to read like a novel. Each character has his story, and each story reveals another facet of the totality which is India. There is the ferociously successful businessman with a shrine in his office, the old friend who has become a recluse and a saint, the Sikh farm visited hours after a massacre. Everywhere, among a multitude of discovered lives, there are mutinies--against the British, against the government, against the Brahmins. And everywhere a tradition of self-sacrifice quite alien and surprising to the West." Shipping weight 3 lbs.

Theroux, Paul  
Riding the Iron Rooster: By Train Through China

Publisher: New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1988..
First Edition. Remainder. 24 X 16 cm. VG+/VG+. Quarter black cloth, brown paper-covered boards, gilt titles on spine, maps on endpapers, 480 pp. A few water spots and red remainder dot on top edge, bump to top edge of rear board. Price-clipped DJ has slight wear to corners & spine ends, a small brown spot on front panel. A brief quote from Chapter 1: "It was my good fortune to be wrong: being mistaken is the essence of the traveler's tale. What I had thought of as the simplest way of getting there--eight trains from London to the Chinese border--turned out to be odd and unexpected. Sometimes it seemed like real travel, full of those peculiar discoveries and satisfactions. But more often it was as if I had lost my footing in London and had fallen down a long flight of stairs, perhaps one of those endless staircases designed by a surrealist painter, and down I went, bump-bump-bump, and across the landing and down again, bump-bump-bump, until I had fallen halfway around the world." Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 12 oz.)
