‘One of the most accomplished travel writers to appear on the horizon for many years …the dialogue is brilliant’ Eric Newby

‘Isabella Tree has an array of qualities that fit her for writing about wild and remote places:  high literacy, insight into alien societies, sympathy, courage, a lucid and colourful fluency, humour that makes many of her pages hilarious, the gift of making friends and an appropriate seriousness about the hazards and problems that can turn Cloud-Cuckoo-Land into an Inferno’ Patrick Leigh Fermor
