Review of 'Land of the Dawn Lit Mountains',

'A fabulously thrilling journey through a beguiling land' - Joanna Lumley

A tale of delight and exuberance - and one I'd thoroughly recommend. Bolingbroke-Kent proves a great travelling companion - compassionate, spirited and with a sharp eye for human oddity' - Benedict Allen,

'A beautifully written, exciting and revealing book that harks back to a golden age of travel writing'  - Lois Pryce, author of Revolutionary Ride
