• Shimshal

    Shimshal has been reprinted and now is available for purchase!

    In 2000, Pam Henson took up a teaching position in Pakistan, in a village three days' walk from the nearest road and vastly removed from any kind of life she had experienced ~ this was Shimshal. Working in one of the world's most remote regions, among pragmatic Ismaili muslims, amorous adventure guides, alpine politicians, and all those working for their village's future, Henson chronicles her adventure with a teacher's humour and a convert's fondness. Shimshsal is a unique record: a place to which few have had access, a time that is passing, a way of life changing.
