My Silk Road Collection

I have added a couple more books to my Silk Road Collection.

It's taking me a long time to work through them all, but I am determined to get there in the end. I have so far read three, and am currently reading Christopher Beckwith's Empires of the Silk Road, and have been doing so all week. It quite an epic work; and very impressive. It deals with the entire length of the road from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific one, from prehistoric times until today. It is fascinating seeing the world from such a different angle,and I'm learning a lot. All sorts of disconnected historical facts are falling neatly into place.
