Ice in Every Carriage front paperback cover
Buy a hardback copy of Ice in Every Carriage by Michael Henderson for just £10.

A leading Asian newspaper in England, Eastern Eye, gave the book its 'review of the week', a front page story with the headline 'Thawing the ice of distrust'. The reviewer writes, 'The book records meetings between Indians, Pakistanis and Sri Lankans with Europeans and Americans just five years into independence. The surprising result was that many of them found skin colour and religious differences fell away when they met each other face to face. Henderson looks at a period of time when Asia could easily have been at odds with the West after winning independence and freedom from colonial rule, but the sensitive venture he describes prevents much hostility and promotes brotherhood'.

This eye-witness account has not only been of great interest to those who were connected with the venture in 1952-53, but has also been appreciated by a wider audience. One county library has just ordered three copies.

People who took part in the trip have written to Michael thanking him for bringing back so many memories and reminding them of an experience which in many cases permanently affected their lives.

You can buy one of the remaining hardback copies at a special price for Christmas of £10.00 (including postage) in UK, £12.50 (including postage) in Europe, and US$ 24 (including postage by air) to North America.
