My Khyber Marriage book. This is a very enjoyable book written about Morag Murray Abdullah's unique experience as a chieftan's wife in the hills of Afghanistan right after WWI. Some of the stories are quite captivating and Morag and her sisters in law are presented as admirable and fearless figures. There are some very romantic chapters as well. Too b I learned that Hindus were once forced to eat ground up statues of Hindu deities by a Muslim ruler. I also learned that Pathan women were brave defenders of hill top forts.
