Long fascinated by religion and mountains, Iain Campbell undertook a slow journey following the course of the Indus River from its mouth in the mud flats of Karachi through the Karakorum, Kashmir and the Himalayas to its source on the Tibetan plateau where it springs from a glacier on Mount Kailash, a mountain Buddhists believe is the centre of the world. From the Lion's Mouth is a book about the transformative experience of his journey, and the pleasures of meandering solo and slowly through country that rises from desert plains to Himalayan peaks. AUTHOR: Iain Campbell has been fascinated by mountains for as long as he can remember and has travelled widely in the mountains of his home country of Scotland and further afield. He studied history at Oxford University where he specialised in medieval religious history. In 2002 he decided to combine these interests by travelling to the holy mountains of Asia. His first book, With Unblest Feet, tells the story of a journey among the mountain pilgrims of the Silk Road. His second book, From the Lion's Mouth, is about Pakistan, a country which combines a rich religious heritage and some of the most spectacular mountains in the world. It is the account of a slow journey through this mesmerizing country in 2004, following the Indus River from its mouth near Karachi through the Punjab and Kashmir to the Tibetan Plateau where the river finds its source. He lives with his family in Edinburgh and continues to travel frequently to Asia.
