Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Intrepid world traveler Levison Wood chronicles his ambitious undertaking of hiking for six months across 1,700 miles of some of the most scenic and extreme landscapes on earth: the Himalayan region spanning Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and Nepal. Wood's British-accented narration is evocative in his descriptions of challenging political circumstances, cross-cultural friendships and misunderstandings, and, of course, the dramatic Himalayan scenery. His portrayal of his life at home in London provides an interesting contrast to the rarefied life of extended, physically demanding trips to distant corners of the planet. Wood's narration conveys the joy and pain of the high and low points of his journey, and the listener can sense his strength and determination in his confident yet humble tone.
