This personal account of war-torn Afghanistan conveys the spirit of the Afghan people and the beauty of the landscape through the perspective of an international Red Cross worker. Photographs and writings depict the brutality of war, poverty, and land mines against the backdrop of the towering mountains that have inspired generations of indigenous artisans, including carpet makers, artists, and poets. Both the character of the aid worker and the Afghan spirit are artistically rendered in this thoughtful, affecting chronicle.
