New at CARL: Shadow of the Silk Road

Check our holdings at CARL: Shadow of the Silk Road by Colin Thubron

Summary: "Shadow of the Silk Road records a journey along the greatest land route on earth. Out of the heart of China into the mountains of Central Asia, across northern Afghanistan and the plains of Iran and into Kurdish Turkey, Colin Thubron covers some seven thousand miles in eight months. Making his way by local bus, truck, car, donkey cart and camel, he travels from the tomb of the Yellow Emperor, the mythic progenitor of the Chinese people, to the ancient port of Antioch - in perhaps the most difficult and ambitious journey he has undertaken in forty years of travel." - From the book jacket
