There Are Other Rivers

Paperback / Kindle / Coffee Table / Mappazine. Signed by the Author. £5 + p&p

“For I have discovered that there are other rivers. And this my boys will not know for a long time nor can they be told. A great many never come to know that there are other rivers.”John Steinbeck


“He’s typically stepped out of the mould with something different”JMT Journal

Alastair Humphreys walked across India following the course of a holy river. Walking alone and spending the nights sleeping under the stars, in the homes of welcoming strangers or in small towns and villages, he experienced the dusty enchantment of ordinary, real India on the smallest of budgets.

There Are Other Rivers tells the story of the whole walk through an account of a single day as well as reflecting on the allure of difficult journeys and the eternal appeal of the open road.

There Are Other Rivers has been produced in a variety of formats suitable for all tastes and budgets.
