Since I am heading off trekking the Annapurna Circuit myself in a couple of weeks I am eagerly reading narratives about this fascinating treck. I found "Skywalkers" book and read it in almost one sitting. I enjoyed every page he wrote and suffered with him every step he took - well, and shared his joys as well. Bill writes from his heart, he is funny and he is not too shy to admit all the stupid mistakes we've probably all fallen to when first traveling to a foreign culture. Highly recommended - even if you plan to stay on your comfy sofa at home.
