Little Women of BaghlanLittle Women of Baghlan is the true account of an ordinary young woman who answers the Peace Corps’ call to service and adventure in 1968, an extraordinary time in world history.

Jo Carter lands in Kabul, Afghanistan, with -instructions to start a nursing school for Afghan girls. She keeps a daily journal, and over the next two years, she fills every page. Nearly a half century later, Susan Fox has written a bio-graphical account of Jo’s time in Afghanistan, when it was on the cusp of becoming a modern nation.
