Product description


"...poetic prose that captures the very essence of the brave, proud people of Afghanistan..." - New York Times - "...an interesting writer, gifted with insight... and a vivid graphic sense; every experience she offers us - of people or place or weather - is received and fully shared." - The New Yorker - "...Her book will remain a faithful account of what Afghanistan was like..." - James A Michener - "

About the Author

Rosanne Klass spent several years teaching in Afghanistan during the 1950s, which became the basis for this book. She returned as a journalist for the New York Times and established the Afghanistan Information Center at Freedom House during the Soviet - Afghan war. She also co-authored and edited Afghanistan - the Great Game Revisited, which is the standard reference on that war. She lives in New York City.
