This is a beguiling coming-of-age travel book. A young Scotsman goes out into the world with no research or equipment, only his inner resources. Brave, adventurous and naive, Rupert admits he knows nothing. All he has are his eyes, his ears and an open heart. He ends up in Tibet, rides a horse across the country relying on the kindness of strangers to feed the horse and himself. Rupert ends up witnessing the 'revolt" by Buddhist monks in 1987 against the Chinese authorities, which was put down with violence. Then he was expelled from the country he had grown to love.

This is a lively, amusing book. It is clear and informative, down to earth, honest and real. It transports the reader to Tibet and provokes a craving to travel. The tales are told in an off beat, effortless tone with zero pretension. This was a refreshing read and I enjoyed every page. The best travel book I have read all year.

I was captivated by this adventure - fascinating detail at every turn, appealing to all the senses - the taste of yak's butter tea, the smells of Tibetan toilets, the sound of rushing torrents, thunder and gunfire, the feeling of bitter cold but also human warmth, and the landscapes from Eastern Europe to the Himalayas and beyond. This is so much more than a travel book. The story is told with honesty and charm as well as fascinating historical and cultural insights. I felt I was there every step of the way.
