"Botanist and ornithologist find rare treasures amid the vast ranges of interior China" - Joseph Rock.

Dr Rock has brought back to America wonderful collections of plants and bird skins from this hitherto unexplored region of snow peaks, glaciers and forests.

One of the expedition's Nashi assistants has captured a fine specimen of the Amherst pheasant in northwest Yunnan."
