by Margaret Cloughley 
An evocative series of letters describing the author's experiences during a two-year stay in this remote Himalayan province

This book is a collection of letters home, written by Margaret Cloughley to her mother in New Zealand over a two year period during which she and her husband Brian lived in Kashmir, while serving there with the UN Military Mission.

Margaret’s evocative letters succeed in painting an entertaining and often very amusing picture of her life as a latter-day memsahib -- a term she uses ironically, given the decidedly unglamorous circumstances in which she and her spouse found themselves in this remote but fascinating Himalayan territory.
