Shadow of the Silk Road

Colin Thubron.

Thubron, a gifted writer with over a dozen books to his name, has written a vivid account of his journey, often under intimidatingly iffy circumstances, across the full length of the ancient Silk Road, from China to the Mediterranean. Rich in history, readers will be transported by stories of ancient empires and sobered by their present realities as witnessed by the indefatigable author.
