This title offers a travel companion and historical
travelogue. It is resourced from travel luminaries: from
George Kennan to Anton Chekhov, Fa Xian and Xuanzang to
Marco Polo and Matteo Ricci, Sir Clarmont Skrine and
Francis Younghusband to Peter Fleming and Ruy Gonzales de
Clavijo. It features fascinating archival images, lavish,
broad-ranging photography, and succinct travel
information section for the modern traveller. What was it
really like to travel the iron rails of the Trans-
Siberian Railway in its early years, the dusty, parched
tracks of the Silk Road in its heyday, or the rugged,
dangerous mountain passes into and out of the Indian
subcontinent? Eurasia's great land routes, offspring of
the ambition of Russian tsars, Chinese emperors and
Mughal khans, have served human history well, acting as
conduits for trade, religion and cultural conventions,
and as avenues down which conquering armies and
commercial pioneers swarmed in the forging of empires.
With wit and humour, Omrani weaves a tapestry of tales<BR
