The Ancient Tea Horse Road by Jeff Fuchs
Mountain passes and small villages help put together a picture of what life was like when this road was a vital lifeline of trade in China. In writing this book, he has preserved an oral history that might otherwise have been lost. The Kindle version had a few typos (yes, I'm THAT person) but otherwise was a very good rendition. There a few small photographs scattered throughout but they are all beautiful shots. If you enjoy the book, I recommend perusing Jeff's website, Tea and Mountain Journals. His company, +JalamTeas, is also definitely worth checking out.
