In Lands of Lost Borders: A Journey on the Silk Road, we meet author Kate Harris, a modern-day explorer.
In this engrossing memoir, she tucks us into the panniers of her bike and takes us along with her and longtime friend Mel Yule on this epic journey along the Silk Road.
As a scientist, she brings to this tale insights into the environmental, social and economic challenges of the lands through which she travels.
Unlike earlier explorers who imposed themselves on the cultures they encountered, Harris is an observer and highlights connections between people, culture, science and literature; she has a keen insight into the human heart.
Harris seeks the wild places of the world and will make you fall in love with these ancient lands.
