If you haven't read Davidson's work, I highly recommend
Rose of Tibet.

I don't know who many works he authored, but I confess to having read only The Rose of Tibet, and recall it being entertaining.

They're all good. Kolymsky Heights is perhaps the least plausible. Rose of Tibet introduced me to the many possibilities of yak butter. I'm glad they're being reissued. They've been hard to find.
