Product description

Review

[Metcalfe's] book has many virtues, the greatest of which are courage and a keen eye for detail, plus an ability to convey the essence of a place through the briefest of anecdotes
--Independent

'Fresh, witty and full of quirky detail...the book is also a serious, sometimes moving account of environmental degradation, political repression and social isolation' --Financial Times

'A terrific read. Metcalfe writes with sensitivity and great flair ... I was totally absorbed' --Rt. Hon. Lord Paddy Ashdown

'This is an important book: a first hand account from an adventurous traveller who has ... reminded us why travel-writing matters'
Nicholas Crane, author of CLEAR WATERS RISING
