Far Sweeter Than Honey

But, if my hands were empty of honey, and pearls and gold, There were treasures far sweeter than honey, and marvelous things to be told. -Gulistan This is the true story of a young man's epic bicycle journey from England to India. Traveling more than eight thousand miles, he encounters all manner of adventure, from the curious company of a butterfly in the wilds of Iran to the aftermath of a coup in Kandahar, Afghanistan-from navigating the foreign yet welcoming Muslim world, where he learns the basics of Islam, to the journey's end in mystical India, where he arrives at an understanding of what it means to be free. William Spencer establishes himself as a writer to watch in his debut book, weaving masterful storytelling and cultural insights in a page-turning adventure.
