Roland and Sabrina Michaud became fascinated with this unique, and once obscure (to Americans) country. They decided to return again and again, over a period of more than a decade, from the late `60’s to the time of the Russian invasion of 1979. At one time the country was on the so-called “hippie route,” the overland route to India. They found their “wonder” not at the end of the route, but along the way. They have shared their fascination with us, primarily via the photograph, in this, as well as other books.
