Publisher's Summary

Levison Wood was only 22 when he decided to hitchhike from England to India through Russia, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but he wasn't the conventional follower of the hippy trail. A fascination with the deeds of the early explorers, a history degree in the bag, an army career already planned and a shoestring budget of £750 - including for the flight home - he was determined to find out more about the countries of the Caucasus and beyond - and meet the people who lived and worked there.
Eastern Horizons is a true traveller's tale in the tradition of the best of the genre, populated by a cast of eccentric characters, from mujahedeen fighters to the Russian mafia. Along the way he meets some people who showed great hospitality while others would rather have murdered him....

Wood does it again!

Another brilliant travel tale from Levison Wood. You really get the feel of the journey and it captures the imagination from start to finish.

cool story

I enjoyed this book especially the wry sense of humour. I phased out on the more political side of the descriptions.
