Danziger's Travels: Beyond Forbidden Frontiersby Nick Danziger
Written with engaging humor, this is Nick Danziger’s account of an 18–month journey “beyond forbidden frontiers” in Asia. Disguised as an itinerant Muslim, and drawing on funds from a Winston Churchill Travel Fellowship, he set off, walking and hitchhiking his way through southern Turkey and Iran. Following in the wake of a Chinese weapons convoy, he then illegally entered Afghanistan; there, he spent two months with rebel guerillas dodging Russian helicopter gunships. Danziger went on to become the first foreigner since the 1949 revolution to cross from Pakistan into the closed western province of China. An incredible journey, brilliantly told. Nick Danziger is an award–winning documentary filmmaker.
