The Places in Between by Rory Stewart An amazing modern day tale of one man’s journey walking across Afghanistan in the middle of the winter, mostly with just his dog.
Takes place right after the “fall” of the Taliban and is a unique insight into the Afghan culture. Throw in freezing temperatures, heavy snow, and some hostile villagers and you have an epic tale.
Rory stayed with local villagers during this entire hike – his “guides” ended up leaving after part of the hike and he continued on solo.
