Description
 
Kevin Rushby (au). Lured by idyllic memories of ancient cities, spectacular mountains &, most of all, dreamy afternoons spent chewing the psychoactive leaves of the qat tree, Rushby set out to travel the old “Qat Road” from the highlands of Ethiopia to Yemen. It was to prove a fascinating & dangerous journey, peopled with an extraordinary array of characters -- criminals, Islamic scholars, an exorcist, & the mysterious Cedric, the traveling companion from hell. Rushby combines classic travel writing with an explanation of the rich & varied culture surrounding the drug qat. Legal in the U.K., but banned in the U.S., experts claim it to be as mild as tea or as addictive as cocaine. Photos.
