from back-cover:

When Eric Newby, improbably earning his living in the London 'haute couture' trade, sent his fateful cable - CAN YOU TRAVEL NURISTAN JUNE? - it was the first step in a classic journey, from Mayfair to the wild mountains of the Hindu Kush, north-east of Kabul. As a more recent generation of travellers has discovered, Afghanistan can be an inhospitable place; as this truly diverting and wonderfully evocative book shows, it is also one of the most spectacularly beautiful wildernesses on earth.

"Impossible to read this book without laughing aloud...the funniest travel book I have ever read"

"A pleasurable story of exotic and eccentric adventure"
(New York Times)
