Read it, it's good.
A fascinating insight into a land about which we hear very little, and from a time before it was ruined by war.

Newby charts an extraordinary journey from the London fashion world to Mir Samir in Afghanistan, a peak within the Hindu Kush mountain system, with three whole days of climbing training in Caernarvonshire as preparation..

It's funny, honest and amazing that he lived to tell the tale.
Rating: 10/10
