A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush
'The view was colossal. Below us on every side mountain surged away it seemed forever; we looked down on glaciers and snowcovered peaks that perhaps no one has ever seen before, except from the air.'
Feeling restless in the world of London's high-fashion industry, Eric Newby asked a friend to accompany him on a mountainclimbing expedition in the wild and remote Hindu Kush, in northeastern Afghanistan. And so they went - although they did stop first for four days of climbing lessons in Wales - becoming the first Englishmen to visit this spectacular region for more than half a century. Newby's frank and funny account of their expedition to what is still amongst the world's most isolated areas is one of the classics of travel writing.
