Review:

"Thubron's journey takes him through a spectacular, talismanic geography of desert and mountain... a whole glittering, terrible and romantic history lies abandoned along with thoughts of more prosperous times... Thubon's grasp of this fantastical past is impeccable, and he weaves its mysteries with modern images into a dazzling embroidery" ( The Times)

"Thubron writes with an originality and vividness that few contemporary authors can match" ( Independent)

"Although the heroic age of travellers in Central Asia has gone for ever, this book will still deserve, for the intense beauty of its pose and the observant clarity of its visions, to stand alongside the best of those classic travel writings of the past" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"This book is a masterpiece of travel writing... in plain English, it's a classic" ( New Statesman)

From the Publisher:

'I would rather read Colin Thubron than any other travel writer alive on central Asia' John Simpson, Daily Telegraph
