Praise For Beyond the Last Village: A Journey Of Discovery In Asia's Forbidden Wilderness

"...often reads like a dispatch not just from a distant place but from a distant time, a letter home from the Age of Discovery that was somehow delayed in transit for a couple of centuries."

— New York Times Book Review

"It feels like Conrad's Heart of Darkness in reverse, as he escapes the 'civilisation' of a brutal military regime to find peace and light in the farthest lands."

— Guardian
