John Grant Ross


John Ross was born in New Zealand in 1968. He has spent most of the past quarter century living in and writing about Asia. His extensive travels - undertaken alone and far off the beaten track - include exploration in Papua New Guinea, dispatches from the Karen insurgency in Burma, and searches in the Gobi Desert and Altai Mountains on the trail of an ancient Mongolian myth. Ross lives in a small town in Taiwan, the subject of his recently reissued Formosan Odyssey. His latest book is You Don't Know China. When not writing, reading, or lusting over maps, he can be found working on the family farm.
