The timing could not be better for us all to revisit the amazing- walking- journey reporter Rory Stewart undertook across the deep snow covered mountains and between the disparate villages of Afghanistan in 2002. The Places In Between is notable not merely for the sheer brazen, foolhardy guts displayed by Stewart in taking on such an expedition, but even more so for the invaluable insight that his trip provides. The variety of cultures, geography and religious views encountered showcases the steep challenges faced by US soldiers over the many, many years of the recently ended war effort. ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine
