Tom Thumb's "Hand to Mouth to India" from Alchemy Books
has become a back-packers' classic

Alchemy presents the Tom Thumb pages

HAND TO MOUTH TO INDIA is both a travel book and a real-life adventure from a young author who, without a penny to his name, chose to re-tread the road east frequently taken by previous generations in the 1960s and 1970s. His experiences reflect modern times and highlight the changes to be found during this almost mythical journey.
The book was published in June 2000 by Alchemy Books and extracts are now being serialised in Jagged Magazine online. More background information, the final cover and other work can be found at the Author's Website and a special promotional section has been posted here at Burnsite.
