    Description
    This is the story of an astonishing adventure that began in the mind of an eight-year-old boy obsessed with "looking for the Afghan" and ended with a perilous dash to safety across more than seven hundred kilometres of mountain and desert. Avoiding land mines and bullets, he spent months travelling through Iraq and Iran negotiating a way into Afghanistan. Joining forces with the war-weary Mujahedeen, he found unexpected allies and unforgettable friends.

    Although Loseby encountered danger on many occasions, he experienced a strange joy; daily life was full of small acts of kindness and many acts of hostility - ordinary exchanges charged with tension and drama. The result is a rare glimpse of Afghani people themselves, people of warmth, generosity and humour. But this is not just a travel story, it is a story of tenacity of spirit and of promises made and kept.
