The Places in Between by Rory Stewart

In 2002 Rory Stewart, a British national and diplomat, set out to walk across Afghanistan. Accompanied by the dog Babur, retired fighting mastiff, he walked 20 miles a day. He relied on the people he met to provide him with food and shelter.¬† Everywhere Stewart listened to the stories of the people; heroes and rogues, soldiers and foreign aid workers. Stewart’s spare writing style impresses with its integrity and realism. ¬†Stewart gives a true insider’s view of a complex society, an illuminating introduction to a misunderstood place.
