Lyrical travel writing and hard-hitting reportage from the remote border region where Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan all meet - one of the last truly unexplored frontiers for Western journalism. Powerful accompanying photographs showcase this rugged, dangerous but beautiful landscape and the struggles of a poorly understood people - the Baloch - desperate to maintain their own national identity.

Editorial Reviews

The photographs of Marc Wattrelot (who studied journalism in Paris and is now a documentary filmmaker in Beirut) and the reportage of Willem Marx (Classics at Oxford and journalism at NYU) interleave with a sort of restrained and humble eloquence in this sparely designed book to conjure up a nuanced yet dramatic account of this difficult region of a difficult country.
