When I spent seventeen months in the Far East gathering material for a Monograph of the Pheasants I naturally devoted all possible time and energy to the accomplishment of this object. But the human senses are not wholly concerned with direct impressions, and sometimes the oblique, corona-like visual and aural contacts are afterwards all the more vivid for being at the time semi-subconsciously received.
Portions of the chapters in this volume, have appeared in “The Atlantic” and “Harper’s Magazine”, but all have been rewritten. The natural history of the pheasants I have recorded elsewhere. These pages have to do with a few of my adventures, servants and thoughts as they came to me in Ceylon, Sikkim, Garhwal, Burma, Tibet, Yunnan, Pahang and Borneo.
This was the first important scientific undertaking which I made as Director of the Department of Tropical Research of the New York Zoological Society.—W.B., Preface. [Suggest a different description.]
