Eight centuries before Columbus, this intrepid pilgrim trave miles on the Silk Road, meeting most of Asia's important Brand: Basic Books. “The Silk Road Journey” is a bit of an odd book. The framework traces Xuanzang’s 10,mile journey from China to India and back, at each important node noticing the Buddhist artwork found there later by (mostly European) investigators, notably Aurel Stein.

Important images are reproduced, though in small size and not in color. Wriggins has corrected most of these drawbacks in this edition that has slightly changed name: "The Silk Road Journey with Xuanzang" pointing the index more on the travel route than on the character. This change of title was probably an editorial choice since the Silk Road is presently an appealing subject.The Silk Road Journey with Xuanzang is an inspiring story of human struggle and triumph, and a touchstone for understanding the religions, art, and culture of Asia.

Bowker Data Service Summary The author, who journeyed in Xuanzang's footsteps, brings to life a courageous explorer and devoutly religious man.By all means read this book if you are interested in the history of the Silk Road.

However there is a significant omission in this book. Xuanzang embarked on this epic journey because he wanted to learn Buddhism from the original source.

But if you think you'll be able to learn much about 7th century Buddhism from this book, think again/5(6).
