"Any one can imagine the fearful monotony of those long dreary marches seated on the back of a slow and silently moving camel.

Notes
reading material unspecified but Younghusband's biographer indicates that he took a hymn book inscribed by his sister (French, 2004, p.38). This part of the source text makes frequent references to the travel writings of Nikolai Prjevalsky [sic] or Przewalski (1839-1888) the Russian geographer, explorer and naturalist who first crossed the Gobi Desert in the 1870s publishing accounts of his crossings in works in 1875 and 1879. It is possible that Younghusband had one of these texts with him.
