A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels in the Far East
Warned by a Hong Kong fortune-teller not to risk flying for a whole year, the author - a seasoned correspondent - took to travelling by rail, road and sea.
Travelling by foot, boat, bus, car and train, he visited Burma, Thaliand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Mongolia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia.
Consulting fortune-tellers and shamans wherever he went, he learnt to understand and respect older ways of life and beliefs now threatened by the crasser forms of Western modernity.
Beautifully written ... a fabulous story of renewal and change... Terzani is already something of a legend. He has written magnificently all his life. Never better than now.' William Shawcross, Literary Review
