Description

Imagine spending thirteen years fighting and travelling in disguise in the deserts of Inner Asia, then another thirteen years as an officer in the army of the Sikhs, the last of India's great native empires. How would you convince a disbelieving Western audience? Suppose, too, that while 'long separated from the world' you had acquired a reputation for conduct utterly unacceptable in civilised society. How would you justify it?

Author Biography

Keay's narrative histories of India, China and the East India Company are widely regarded as standard works. His India: A History (now in its second edition) has been in print for over 25 years. He is also the author of the Royal Geographical Society's 'History of World Exploration'.Forty years and twenty books later, Keay's credentials for writing about Gardner both as a scholar and writer are unrivalled.
