Forstmann spent 25 years as a German tea planter in Darjeeling, a rare phenomenon among the British-dominated tea plantations. His differentiated description of Darjeeling, Sikkim and the foothills of the Himalaya is considered a classic of Himalayan literature. “The people I have tried to show as they have appeared to me, with their wild superstition, their infinite dirt and yet happy and funny character, under which there is a good deal of rascality.” Uncommon with the jacket.
