“Exploring a largely unknown part of the world (the silk route between China and Turkey) with Thubron is quite an adventure. You will come away from this book with a better understanding of the people, religions, and cultures that are of great importance in our world today. To be able to discuss the complexities with others only enhances the trip. I had a great time!”
— Mary McHale, Fox Tale Books, New Durham, NH


The Silk Road is a huge network of arteries and veins, splitting and converging across the breadth of Asia, passing through China, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey, and the most sterile desert on earth: the Taklamakan. This book traces the passage not just of trade and armies, but of ideas, religions and inventions.
