Is this a book/novel or can we also read on line, some site or so? Please advise, would like to read and get to know the route. A friend of mine claims to have seen the black Bentley in Nagpur a few days ago, and it was going great guns.

The book is not online AFAIK. But lot of bookshops keep Keay's novel and they are bunch of good reads if any one is interested in knwoing about explorations in and around Indian subcontinent. Keay's and Hopkirk are two writers who have written a lot about english discover of overland route beyond Himalaya's.
Any further news on this event?
