"Khyber Caravan" is the classic account of Sinclair's journey across British India, through the beautiful mountains of Kashmir, across the blazing deserts of Waziristan, and finally, through the famed Khyber Pass. On the way Sinclair met a host of colorful characters and observed the most famous sights in the fabled sub-continent. ... Locale: Afghanistan; Baluchistan; Kashmir; Northern India; Waziristan.
