In 1177, Pope Alexander III wrote a letter to the elusive King of the Indies, otherwise known as Prester John. The person who was selected and set out to deliver this letter into the hand of Prester John was never heard of again. 824 years later, armed with a copy of Pope Alexander's letter, Nick Jubber set out from Venice with the intention of somewhat belatedly completing Master Philip's mission. Over the next four months he would travel by bus, train, tractor, and horse-drawn cart around the Eastern Mediterranean, through the Middle East and North Africa before homing in on Ethiopia and the closely-guarded tomb of a medieval king who legend links with the mythical, mystical figure of Prester John.

About the Author:

Nicholas Jubber was educated at Oxford. He has travelled extensively in South America, Europe, the Middle East, East Africa and Afghanistan and worked as a freelance journalist. He is also a playwright and has won an Oxford New Writing award. THE PRESTER QUEST is his first book.

Review:

“Nicholas Jubber’s search for the mythical monarch, Prester John, is quixotic to the point of madness. But his is an inspiring madness, bright with medieval fervor for the obscure, yet softened by skepticism and unflagging humor.”  —Independent
