Known to Alexander the Great as "Transoxania" (the land beyond the Oxus) the area has been settled for over three millenia, and dominated the Silk road for much of that time. The book details, in 200 pages, the monumental architecture, the natural beauty of the desert wastes and the high fertile valleys, and the people and culture of this meeting point of Turkish, Persian, and Russian culture. It also covers how to get there, get around, avoid pitfalls, and see the real heart of Central Asia.
