Summary:
"In 1911, Hermann Hesse sailed through southeastern Asian waters on a trip that would define much of his later writing. With a peek into the workings of his mind through the pages of his journals, poems, and a short story that have all never before been translated to English, these writings describe the real-life experiences that inspired Hesse to write his most famous works: Siddhartha, The Journey to the East, and others"-- Provided by publisher.
