Travels into Bokhara : A Voyage Up the Indus to Lahore and a Journey to Cahool, Tartary and Persia Paperback

Edited by Kathleen Hopkirk

Description

Alexander Burnes travelled up the Indus to Lahore and to the Khanates of Afghanistan and Central Asia in the 1830s, spying on behalf of the British Government in what was to become known as the 'Great Game'.

His account of these travels was a bestseller in its day and this brand new edition brings the heady sense of excitement, risk and zeal bursting from the pages.
