Description:
The Green Unknown is about walking, without a map or a plan, across the Khasi Hills in the Northeast Indian state of Meghalaya—a place of jungle canyons and thousand-foot waterfalls, where it rains more than any other inhabited place in the world, where each village has its own dialect or even its own language, and where the people grow living bridges from the roots of trees. The book is an attempt to express what it’s like trying to explore, mile by mile, village by village, valley by valley, a place that’s beautiful, complex, and fascinating, but most of all, unique.

My View:
This is a book that will appeal to travellers and readers alike. Arm chair travelling is one of my favourite past times and Patrick Rogers has taken me on a journey that has filled me with awe. This is a very personal account of Patrick’s travels as he explores remote, tropical jungles searching for evidence of living tree bridges.

Written with passion, humour and respect for the landscapes that he explores (both societal and physical), you will love the frizzon of excitement you will get when accompanying Patrick on his adventures.

Wishing you safe travels Patrick.
