Gerry Galligan's first book is a bold and expansive travel diary recounting his assembling of a small team of Irish mountaineers and their attempts on unclimbed mountains and unexplored valleys in the remote corners of the Indian Himalaya.

Getting there the team see the hardships of the sub-continent while in the mountains they experience storms dangers and failure before ultimately success and contentment. But it is when Gerry returns to the mountains alone and his subsequent experiences overlanding across Asia and Europe back to Ireland that we start to get a glimpse of the big wide world out there.

A world of temples festivals holy cows Kalashnikovs donkey herders corruption opportunists stoners and sages. Gerry gives us an insight into the day-to-day lives of mountain peoples the dysfunctional functionality of India. He finds charm and tolerance in Pakistan and a surprising openness in today's Iran. We travel across rural Turkey and work our way back to the efficient and affluent West where right on cue Gerry meets his first breakdown on a German train.
