The book also provides a genuine picture of the home life of many of the Afghan’s whose Muslim religion encourages them to welcome strangers and share what they have. There are descriptions of many villages destroyed/damaged by the American and Nato forces. There are interesting uncertainties concerning the loyalty of some village/area leaders who were once Taliban and could still be in some cases.
