Pilgrims on the Silk Road - by Walter R. Ratliff

Walter Ratliff's book, Pilgrims on the Silk Road, and video, Through the Desert Goes our Journey, both are doing very well in sales and in awards and they are receiving the wider distribution and audience they deserve. Some people from the Rosthern area were on the second excursion to Khiva and area which was held in 2010. We hope in the near future to hear more from them about their adventures.
