Francisco Javier Fernandez
- Published on Amazon.com
It was not easy to find a copy of this book, but, being crazy about travelling along the Silk Road, I kept trying until I eventually found one. And the book was not what I expected, i. e., a recollection of Peter Hopkirk's wife memories, but a really entertaining and fascinanting brief introduction to the history of some of the most fabled cities or regions in central Asia. Very enjoyable, and including besides a very extensive bibliography (form which the author takes a lot of information and paragraphs).
