In the autumn of 1961, Xie took a month long trip to Inner Mongolia, traversing thousands of miles. This manuscript preserves some of the poems he composed during his travels. The quatrains, composed of seven-character lines, describe the surrounding scenery and a meal eaten in a Mongolian yurt. Although Xie by that time had stopped painting in the style of Chen Hongshou (1599–1652), his calligraphy still bore the influence of the late Ming master.
