Synopsis

Whose Tail? by Sam Lloyd

Every rock, every hill has its story, Winston Churchill wrote of the turbulent lands of the North-West Frontier. Here are those stories. Against a background of the history and geography of the region, the author paints a vivid picture of this extraordinary place. Drawing on written records, Schofield unravels the history of the North-West Frontier from Alexander the Great to the kidnapping of Molly Ellis; from the languages and religions to the women; from skirmishes, wars and the mujahedin struggle with the Soviet Union, to the more recent tragic history which continues to unfold there.
