'Written sharply, vividly... If you're looking for an antidote to chirpy travel-guide descriptions of Central Asia, then this is the book for you.' - Sam Tranum, author of Daily Life in Turkmenbashy's Golden Age. 'Packed with insights into every corner of the region.' - Paul Wilson, Trailblazer Guides writer and author of The Alphabet Game. 'Weaves together my favourite elements of a travelogue: historical context and current observations mixed with a dry sense of humour and amusing anecdotes... Does it Yurt? will result in my journey to Central Asia being that much more rewarding.' - Ric Gazarian, author of 7000KM To Go and Hit the Road India; top 500 travel blogger. 'Stephen M. Bland's writing captures the magical whirlwind flavour of Central Asia in this very perceptive and insightful book. Those who have visited this wonderful part of the world will instantly recognise and reminisce on the many stories of potholed journeys by shared taxi, generous encounters with friendly locals and the inevitable run-ins with bumbling bureaucracy. Those who haven't yet visited will be inspired to book their next adventure as soon as they can put the book down. A thrilling ride from start to finish.' - Nick Rowan, author of Friendly Steppes: A Silk Road Journey
