..".thoroughly absorbing...one of the strongest nonfiction books to appear yet in 2015...Carroll is a winningly immediate writer, with a deeply personal feel for the memorable, the authentic. His book is studded with great scenes and great moments....A great deal of Peaks on the Horizon reads like diving into a bonfire; this is travel-writing of the highest order, simultaneously ambassadorial and conspiratorial. All travelers - armchair or otherwise - are urged not to miss it."Open Letters Monthly
