Long before the Taliban, long before the Mujahideen, there existed Afghanistan, much as it had existed, almost entirely unchanged since time immemorial. Into that unforgiving landlocked place ventured one Eric Newby, who, having penetrated the Hindu Kush, returned to tell the tale of his 'short walk'.
Afghanistan's people remain as implacable as the land they inhabit. And after the upheaval of our day has been long forgotten, it will probably still be it always was.
Fabulous book for armchair travelers. His British sense of humor and vivid descriptions make this book a delight. I can't wait to read his others. KG
