Both Rob's second book and the National Geographic TV series DVD, are now available.

They tell the story of Rob and cameraman Leon McCarron's 5,000km walk from Mongolia, down through the length of China to Rob's home in Hong Kong.

Along the way they survived blizzards in the Gobi, followed desolate stretches of the Great Wall, and camped beside the frozen Yellow River. But this is not just an adventure story. It is also about friendship, struggle, and learning about the land of China and its people at ground level.
