    Eric Newby.

    The death, at 86, has been announced of Eric Newby, my favourite
    travel writer.
    Many Navlist members may be familiar with his account of "The last
    grain race", a before-the-mast round trip to Australia in an Erikson
    four-master, "Moshulu", in 1938, and another volume, mostly pictures,
    about the same voyage, titled "Grain race".
    But Newby's most enjoyable book, I reckon, had nothing to do with the
    sea. If anyone hasn't read "A short walk in the Hindu Kush", they have
    a treat in store.
