In My Father's Country:An Afghan Woman Defies her Fate

Saima Wahab
In My Father's Country

This is one of the most interesting books that I've read in a year. Saima's father was killed when she was 3 and at age 15 her uncles took her to the U.S. where she graduated from college. She then went back to Afghanistan as an interpreter and she soon was trying to teach the American troops how to deal with the Pashtun culture which is so different from ours. As an American citizen, she could see both sides of relationships and tried hard to explain it all to the Afghans and Americans. I learned so much from this book and it was fascinating to view her personality and what she was trying to do with her life. Check our catalog
