“Asia is the ancestral cradle for all the principal world religions—from Judaism, with its pure-in-spirit prophets, to Buddhism, with its philosophy of enlightenment; from Christianity, with its message of love, to Islam, with its discipline and charity.”
– Nick Rowan
Chinese silk traders began carrying their soft, shimmering cloth across Asia 2200 years ago. For 1700 years the silk trade thrived, linking east and west, and fabulous cities such as Samarkand and Kashgar grew up along the route. But in 1493 the Ottoman empire blocked the trade, and ever since the Silk Road has been the stuff of legend, entwined with magical stories of minarets and colourful bazaars and bold travellers such as Marco Polo.
Now well-known writer and traveler Nick Rowan opens up this wonderful world again, sharing his own extraordinary experiences of traveling the Great Silk Road. Published in English by British publishing house Hertfordshire press, ‘The Sllk Road revisited’ is packed with gorgeous photos that capture some of the rich magic of this ancient trail.
“The Silk Road revisited” is a true cultural journey along one of the world’s oldest trade routes. On the way, you will discover the culture, history and traditions of each of the fascinating and diverse countries Nick passed through while enjoying beautiful photographs by famous photographers from around the world such as Dan Lundberg, Feruz Rustamov, James Stronsky and many others.
