From jacket flap:

An absorbing account of a difficult 12,500 mile journey made by a British couple in their van, which they named “The Ark”, through Asia, from Malaya, after that country had gained its independence from British rule. They passed through places full of interest, overflowing with colour and the author, with her artist’s eye for scene and detail sundrenched splendours, has re-created the vast unforgettable landscapes, and the life of the people.
