To the Frontier

£14.00 £11.20 (Paperback)

To the Frontier is the compelling and vivid account of Geoffrey Moorhouse’s three-month journey through Sind, Baluchistan and the Punjab to the legendary North-West frontier of Pakistan. From there he reached the closed Khyber Pass and the border with Afghanistan which he was - uniquely - permitted to cross, and scaled the highest peaks of the Hindu Kush. Moorhouse’s evocation of a beautiful, turbulent and little-known region is masterly and unforgettable.

‘It was high time someone put Pakistan on the travel bookshelf, and this is what Geoffrey Moorhouse has done - with style, relish, much wit and enormous good humour … No one has better captured the scenic contrasts of this diverse country.’ Sunday Telegraph
