Across Eurasia is a journey of discovery, which unfolds during a yearlong adventure that encircles the globe.

Sensing that his life has edged towards meaninglessness, and finding little refuge in society's trappings, author Toby Smith returns to a mostly abandoned village high in the Mexican desert. His experience there reinvigorates his curiosity about one of life's most fundamental questions.

In 1998, at age twenty-eight, he sets out to examine his beliefs firsthand by immersing himself in a hands-on exploration of the human condition. He treks through the Himalaya, barely survives a pilgrimage to Tibet, encircles the Indian subcontinent, and traverses Eastern Europe as the region emerges from the grip of the Cold War.

As he comes full circle, Smith emerges a changed individual with newfound awareness about what makes us human. Eloquent, engaging, and enduring, Across Eurasia is a classic of transformative travel writing.
