Sylvain Tesson guides us through this side of the Roof of the World, also sometimes known as High Asia, poetically describing his personal journey over its weathered ridges and hidden valleys, as well as the unique encounters with its wild inhabitants.

Favorite Quote

"What quality made it possible to paint a picture, to write a sonata or a poem? Patience. It always brought its rewards, its delicate fluctuations offering both the risk that time will seem long and a method for never becoming bored. To wait was to pray."
