Book cover of The Amur River: Between Russia and China by Colin Thubronby Colin Thubron

“A gripping read with fascinating political insight.” (Sunday Times, London)

“Elegant, elegiac and poignant…Thubron is an intrepid traveler, a shrewd observer and a lyrical guide… to the river, much of it along the border between these two powers at a time of rapid and tense reconfiguration of global geopolitics.” (Washington Post)

The most admired travel writer of our time—author of Shadow of the Silk Road and To a Mountain in Tibet—recounts an eye-opening, often perilous journey along a little known Far East Asian river that for over a thousand miles forms the highly contested border between Russia and China.
