Adopting the name The Silent Traveller, he threw himself into his passions—writing, painting and poetry—and produced some of the most evocative, unique and enduring travel books ever written. Chiang Yee was, in his own words, dazzled by the Scottish capital. From the Meadows to Princes Street, from Arthurs Seat to Calton Hill and Edinburgh Castle, he paints an unforgettable picture of Edinburgh and its people in the 1940s.

Writing with wry humor, he broadens our perspective of familiar sights and customs, introduces us to Confucian philosophy and Chinese poetry, corrects cultural misconceptions and encourages us to appreciate life. Illustrated throughout with Chiang Yees exquisite paintings, sketches and Chinese calligraphy, this edition—the first for over 50 years—has a new foreword by Da Zheng, Associate Professor of English at Suffolk University, Massachusetts.
