Levison Wood was only 22 when he decided to hitch-hike from England to Indi a through Russia, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but he wasn't the convent ional follower of the hippy trail. A fascination with the deeds of the earl y explorers, a history degree in the bag, an army career already planned an d a shoestring budget of £750 - including for the flight home - he was det ermined to find out more about the countries of the Caucasus and beyond - a nd meet the people who lived and worked there. EASTERN HORIZONS is a true traveller's tale in the tradition of the best of the genre, populated by a cast of eccentric characters; from mujahideen fighters to the Russian mafia. Along the way he meets some people who showed great hospitality, while others would rather have murdered him.
