Frontiers of Heaven

This book by Stanley Stewart was a quick and enjoyable read. He manages to write about his travels without focusing on the travel (no detailed bus rides) even though he spends quite a bit of time on buses and trains. He also writes well enough to make just about anything that happened to him interesting.

His travels took him overland from Beijing to Islamabad in Pakistan. Most of the book is spent in western China, which is another reason why I liked it. He went to the places I'm interested in.

So I recommend this book over most China travel books.
