Abstract:

"John Turner was a packman. With his train of horses he carried salt and silk, travelling distances incomprehensible to his ancient and static community. In the novel, John brings ideas as well as gifts which have come, by many short journeys, from market town to market town, from places as distant as the campfires of the Silk Road. John Turner's death in the eighteenth century leaves an emotional charge which, in the twenty-first century, Ian and Sal finds affects their relationship, challenging the perceptions they have of themselves and of each other."--Jacket.
