A NOVEL (Sample chapters & Photo Gallery)

"Noor Khan's book is so rich and varied and swashbuckling... a semi-equestrian pirate love adventure (where he clearly doesn't come off as a saint). The crazy thing about the story is, it almost seems like it was meant to happen to him, maybe because he doesn't go down the road of sensationalism - even though it's a pretty mad story, or rather it could seem like a mad story.. ok, it's got the guns and dope and woman and he's not averse to the breaking of a few taboos - but the thing that came across for me is the heart and impulse and life. And the life of Pakistan, close up and engaged. However things are, he just seems go for it head-first. Which is why, I guess, the story is such an eye-opener into Pakistan.

.... to be honest, two pages in it made me want to hop on a flight to Pakistan. And at the end, I was ready to pick up the sequel ....but to be truthful, I was happy my imagination was trying to conjure up whatever happened next.

Very cool book."

Here are the first three chapters of my novel 'SOME TIME ON THE FRONTIER_A PAKISTAN JOURNAL' (several edits back) comprised of my diaries and journals written between 1988 and 1992, while living in the Northwest Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan. I have also included three more chapters from near the end of the book about an adventure in Bajaur Agency, Tribal Territory (on the Afghan border), and a map of the route traveled on the five month horse trip included in the book.
It is now available on Amazon and other select sources..
