From the cover: “The Kali Gandaki is one of the world's most violent rivers. To the people of Nepal it is the Goddess of Death, yet another hazard in a country burdened with disease and infant mortality. But to the country's pioneering medical missionaries it has always been seen as a potential agent for life — a possible highway through the mountains, linking homes with hospitals. Taking specially-designed new hovercraft, a 26-man British Joint Services Expedition set out to try to harness the previously unnavigable river. Journey to the Fourth World is the leader's account of this adventurous and testing expedition and its results in and beyond Nepal.”
