Traces the author's 2002 journey by foot across Afghanistan, during which he survived the harsh elements through the kindness of tribal elders, teen soldiers, Taliban commanders, and foreign-aid workers whose stories he collected along his way.
Arriving six weeks after the fall of the Taliban, journalist Stewart set out to walk across Afghanistan, accompanied by a mastiff he named Babur after the Mughal emperor of lore. He recounts the five-week journey in this memoir, describing his encounters with poor villagers, tribal elders, Taliban commanders, Western aid workers, Quranic scholars, and many others across the remote war-torn country.
