Description

Rory Stewart’s moving, sparsely poetic account of his walk across Afghanistan in January 2002 has been in an instant hailed as a classic. Caught between hostile nations, warring factions and competing ideologies, at the time, Afghanistan was once in turmoil following the USA invasion. Travelling entirely on foot and following the inaccessible, mountainous route once taken by the Mohgul Emperor, Babur the Great, Stewart was once nearly defeated by the extreme, hostile conditions., Only as a result of the assistance of an unexpected companion and the generosity of the people he met at the way, did he continue to exist to report back with unique insight on a region closed to the world by twenty-four years of war. ‘This is traveling at its hardest and trip-writing at its best’ – David Gilmour ‘an astonishing achievement: a unique journey of great courage’ – Colin Thubron ‘wise, funny and marvelously humane’ – Michael Ignatieff ‘[this] evocative book feels like a long lost relic of the great age of exploration’ – Guardian ‘His encounters with Afghans are tragic, touching and terrifying.’ – Day by day Telegraph
