WALKING AFGHANISTAN

If, finally, you’re determined to do something as recklessly stupid as walk across a war zone, your surest bet to quash all the inevitable criticism is to write a flat-out masterpiece. Stewart did. Stewart has.”—Tim Bissell, The New York Times Book Review

In 2002, just weeks after the Taliban’s fall, Rory Stewart undertook to walk east to west across Afghanistan. “You will die, I can guarantee,” an Afghanistan Security Service officer told him before he began. Stewart was undeterred, and the resulting story is one of the absolutely best works of travel writing to come our way in years.

Sounds interesting, but I probably wouldn't seek it out.

What Rudi said. I think it might be a good read, but it doesn't sound like something that would draw me to look for it unless it just happened to fall in my lap.
