About This Book

A 2007 note by the author introduces this reissue of her 1964 memoir/travelogue of Afghanistan in the 1950s. In 1957 American Rosanne went as a government schoolteacher to Kabul and for two years worked there and in the surrounding area. The relaxed memoir gives many insights into an Afghanistan which has since been succeeded by violent and very different Soviet and Taliban regimes and now the present instability. A brief return 1960s visit to the changing country is noted. With some photographs.
