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.Hide synopsis

While considering that anyone who would do what he did was to be entirely crazy, he very well defined that unique world of central Asia in terms of medieval-like tribal over central government and peoples who live entirely differently from the world we're used to.
A very interesting "read" and ...
Rory Stewart again lets the arm chair traveler meet people from a part of the world we would never go to. This book is not your standard travel book. Stewart is walking (yes all on foot) through a very dangerous part of the world. Add in that he did this in winter in a place the natives don't recommend ...
Rory Stewart writes without hyperbole managing to downplay his daily life-threatening walk across Afganistan in the winter following the overthrow of the Taliban. Full of history, a rich vestment of daily life and the people he meets in his pilgrimage in between being shot at and interrogated by his ...
