Short Walks from Bogotá: Journeys in the New Colombia
For decades, Colombia was the ‘narcostate’. Now it’s seen as one of the rising stars of the global economy. Where does the truth lie? How did a land likened to paradise by the first conquistadores become a byword for hell on earth? And how is it rebuilding itself after decades of violence?
Journalist Tom Feiling has journeyed throughout Colombia, down roads recently too dangerous to travel, talking to former guerrilla fighters to nomadic tribesmen and millionaires. Vital, shocking and never simplistic, Short Walks from Bogota unpicks the tangled fabric of Colombia, creating a stunning work of reportage, history and travel writing.
