"For the last thirty-five years, since first publication of his magnificent epic of the sea, The Last Grain Race, Eric Newby has led ever-growing numbers of devoted readers in what he once described as a 'merry dance around the world'. In so doing, he has involved them in a series of comic, bizarre and sometimes downright hazardous situations; and it is no exaggeration to say that his books have inspired whole generations of would-be travellers to take off for pastures new." "Wherever his dances take him, whether ploughing through the potsherds in the now dead cities of Asia Minor, on the shores of the Mediterranean, climbing a pyramid - inside and out - or taking a short walk in the Hindu Kush, connoisseurs will immediately recognise the self-deprecating humour, the sharp eye for the absurd that is vintage Newby."--BOOK JACKET.
