the book allows you to savour at greater leisure his undoubted scholarship. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)
a book both solid and lively enough to transcend tie-in status. Cruickshank boasts breadth and depth, bubbling with as much glee over the VW Beetle as the Taj Mahal. (INDEPENDENT)
... beneath the jocular surface lies an entirely serious expertise. The breadth of Cruickshank's knowledge and the very speed of his journey enables him to make striking connections between apparently unrelated cultures... illuminating... inspirational. (THE GUARDIAN)
enthusiasm backed up by impressive research. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH (TRAVEL))
a highly enjoyable read (COUNTRY LIFE)
Dan Cruickshank's quest is to tell the story of civilisation through the greatest of man's achievements. It will also be the story of his travels, and who and what he meets along the way.
Whether standing before the solemn heads of Easter Island, investigating the mysterious Nazca lines in Peru or the magnificent temple of Borobodur in Java, Dan is never less than fascinating about the origins, construction, mysteries and vicissitudes of each of these monuments to the great civilisations of the world. Do they live up to expectation? Have they been left in ruin, or over-restored?
Dan's diary, written at the end of each day, records his most intimate thoughts and feelings, the people he has met, the ups and downs of the journey, perils, joys, and the ongoing relationships formed on the road.
