Review:

"One of Britain's sexiest authors" ( Marie Claire)

"A superb and truthful book. I cannot remember the last travel book that had me laughing aloud and in tears by the end- extremely worthwhile and memorable." ( Traveller)

"Something in Bealby's voice, a mixture of innocence, determination and pain, makes the journey worthwhile. I was glad to be there when [he] reaches his pagan land." ( Sunday Times)

"A rollicking tale. No one has written a better travel book about the region since Eric Newby came down from the Hindu Kush." ( Daily Telegraph)
