A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush

A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush by Eric Newby

This book was recommended to me a few years ago by a friend in Denver. I searched for it but could never find it, so forgot about it. The title popped up again while I was reading "Stones Into Schools", so I checked Amazon again - lo and behold it was available and I promptly ordered it.

It quickly became my book of choice while on vacation...it was a great read! The author, who works in the fashion industry in England, decides (quite randomly) to explore the Hindu Kush, one of the most remote and uncivilized regions on the planet. A friend joins up with him and they set off...neither with much expedition or adventurer experience. This book is the travel journal from the trip.
