There are Other Rivers

It's nothing to do with paddling, despite the name, but if you love journeying, you'll love the book.

Al Humphreys is an "adventurer and writer" and very good at both. I first came across him when I read his stories of cycling round the world. This included taking on Siberia in the winter.
This book is the story of a walk across India, but it isn't a travelogue, and he doesn't even say where he was. It's short, easily read in a couple of evenings. It's all about why we love journeys, despite the all too frequent discomfort. I loved it.
