Overview

Alastair Humphreys walked across India, from the Coromandel Coast to the Malabar Coast, following the course of a holy river.

This book is really a perfect painting accomplished with words, rather than oils… Alastair takes us with him on a beautiful journey that we will all desire to replicate… All I can say is that it truly touched my heart and that I am thankful, truly, that the experience has been shared with the rest of us. Enjoy!
