In 1971, no one had heard of Afghanistan, and no one cared. The Russians hadn’t yet invaded, and the Talibans didn’t exist. Eloise Hanner takes us back to a simpler time and shares with us her story as a young teacher, living in Afghanistan as an American Peace Corps volunteer. In a tearful good-bye, Hanner promised her mother she would write on a weekly basis, and she was good to her word. She described the wonderful flavor of Kuchi caravans and her journeys through the Kyber Pass. Her letters bring to life the challenges she and her husband faced, living as young volunteers in a culture that was both hospitable and hostile, long before the American soldier made his presence felt throughout the harsh countryside.
