Rendered into English from the Russian Manuscript of the Author by Malcolm Burr.London: George Allen & Unwin, 1935 Stock Code: 128632
First edition. Nazaroff, who had assisted British and White Russian forces in Tashkent escaped a Soviet prison for China. This journey formed the subject of his first book, Hunted Through Central Asia. After China recognised the Soviet state in 1924 Nazaroff was forced to flee again, this time for Kashmir, across Chinese Turkestan. This narrative tells this second part of his escape which eventually brought him to England, where he befriended the translator, Malcolm Burr. The two men went to Angola together in 1927, working as prospecting agents for two years, after which Burr persuaded Nazaroff to publish his story for the English speaking public.
