      Travel  >>    A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush
Book Title: A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush
Desc:

This classic traveller's story by Eric Newby relates his abandonment of the dubious delights of London's fashion trade for the even more dubious pleasures of a short walk in the wild mountains of the Hindu Kush. Even in moments of deepest traveller's gloom, the author's wit, verve and sheer energy never waver, in the retelling, at least. Incidents ghastly and ecstatic pack the pages of his breathless journey through the exotic Hindu Kush, a delight for all lovers of the exploits of the English traveller at large.
