The Places In Between, Rory Stewart's moving account of his walk across Afghanistan in January 2002 was immediately hailed as a classic.

Caught between hostile nations, warring factions and competing ideologies, at the time Afghanistan was in turmoil following the US invasion. Travelling entirely on foot and following the inaccessible mountainous route once taken by the Mogul Emperor, Babur the Great, Stewart was nearly defeated by the extreme, hostile conditions. Only with the help of an unexpected companion and the generosity of the people he met on the way did he survive to report back with unique insight on a region closed to the world by twenty-four years of war.

Winner of the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Award and the Spirit of Scotland Award and shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize and the Scottish Book of the Year Prize.

Review:

This is traveling at its hardest and travel-writing at its best -- David Gilmour

With a deft, at time poetic vividness, he describes an awesome landscape, scarred by a present and a past of violence and death . . . His encounters with Afghans are tragic, touching and terrifying, Daily Telegraph

[Stewart] must have balls of steel, but he writes like and angel all the same -- Giles Foden

This evocative book feels like a long lost relic of the great age of exploration, Guardian

An astonishing achievement: a unique journey of great courage -- Colin Thubron

Wise, funny and marvelously humane -- Michael Ignatieff

An insight into the country that few could match, New Statesman

Thank goodness for brave people doing crazy things and for a writer in the tradition of Thesiger and Thubron, Spectator

From the Publisher:

Adapted for the afternoon play on Radio 4 and Radio Times
Radio Choice of the Day.
