In Making Friends among the Taliban, childhood friend Jonathan Larson retraces Dans nearly forty years in Afghanistan and, through interviews and eye witness accounts, relays Dans incredible way of daily living. Facing famine, poverty, prison, and rifle muzzlesand across three decades of kings, the Red Army, warlords, the Taliban, and the American-led coalitionDan found improbable friendships across the front lines of conflict and inspired small Afghan communities to find a better way of life. This inspirational narrative of Dans life and friendships offers a model for living authentically wherever we are.
