Hi Pierre,

I think it's a good read.

He was in-country in the mid 19th century. Started in Sind, moved up into central Afghanistan and then from Kabul to Bamiyan, staying with the Hazara for a bit, then into proximal Turkmenistan and Qunduz, up through Khirgiz territory to the upper reaches of the Wakhan district to the source of the Oxus.

There are several segments where he discusses family life and living quarters, etc.

Also earthquakes.

I had access to an original edition when still living in Saudi Arabia and mentioned it in a couple discussions we have had here; here's a link to one from 2002:


It's available in Google Books, and original and reprint copies are in the book market.
