The Indus rises in Tibet to flow west across India before turning south through Pakistan to the Arabian Sea. For millennia it has been worshipped as a god; for centuries it has been a route of imperial conquest. Following the mighty river upstream, this highly acclaimed, award-winning travelogue takes the reader on a voyage through 2000 miles of spectacular landscapes and fiercely contested territory, and back through 5000 years of rich and eventful history.
