" Tim Severin, author of The Brendan Voyage, took up the challenge from antiquity offered by Marco Polo. Using the great explorer's journals as a guide, Severin followed him all the way from Venice to the Hindu Kush on a motorcycle. This is his enthralling account of a latter-day caravan through Armenia and Persia, across deserts and mountains, as Severin and his two companions overcome crashes, floods, sandstorms and linguistic muddles with zest and ingenuity. Ancient and modern jostle for attention in the bustling towns and panoramic landscapes of Turkey and Afghanistan. Seeking out thirteenth-century Asia, they pass through the Valley of the Assassins to find the village of the Magi. And even with his foot in a cast, Severin rides a camel high into the Deh Bakri Pass in search of the famed 'apples of paradise.' The excitement, the historical background, and the sheer magic of this epic journey are brought vividly to life by one of the finest travel writers of the present day."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
