|Summary, etc.:|| An Unexpected Light is the account of Jason Elliot's journey through Afghanistan, a country considered off-limits to travelers for twenty years. Aware of the risks involved, but determined to explore what he could of the Afghan people and culture, Elliot leaves the relative security of the capital, Kabul. He travels by foot and on horseback, and hitches rides on trucks that eventually lead him into the snowbound mountains of the North toward Uzbekistan, the former battlefields of the Soviet army's "hidden war." Here the forbidden beauty of the Afghan landscape kindles a moving recollection of the author's life ten years earlier, when, no more than a boy, he fought with the anti-Soviet mujaheddin resistance during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan.
