    [synopsis] => An energetic and enthralling series of encounters with warlords, mujahideen fighters and hardy deminers that will take you into the life of an Australian soldier sent alone into the wilds of Afghanistan. 
 
In 1991, following the Soviet-Afghan war, Graeme Membrey left the comfort of his home in Perth to work for an Afghan NGO in the United Nations demining program. Along with his pregnant wife, he travelled to Karachi, then to Islamabad, before settling in the city of Peshawar where he was to spend a year closely working with deminers in Afghanistan and Pakistan. 
 
Away from the front line, this book deals with the less-told story of what is left behind after war ends. With humour and humility, Graeme Membrey recounts a variety of incidents and surprising stories of his time in this part of the world. Behind the anecdotes lies the story of friendship and the universal connection between humans in spite of language barriers and cultural differences.
