This review is from: Foreign Devils on the Silk Road: The Search for the Lost Treasures of Central Asia (Paperback)
This was my first introduction to Peter Hopkirk, I realise that I have been missing out. He is a fabulous writer, bringing plenty of drama to this telling of the incredibly intrepid first europeans to see and report back on the previously unknown Buddist communities of the appallingly inhospitable Taklaman desert. A real eye opener, which left me hungry to read more on the subject.
