Synopsis

THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER: A brilliant account of a death defying walk through Afghanistan. Now with illustrations and a new afterword

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
