Blue Is the Colour of Heaven
Richard Loseby
Price: $ 13.95

This is the story of an astonishing adventure that began in the mind of an eight-year-old boy obsessed with "looking for the Afghan" and ended with a perilous dash to safety across more than seven hundred kilometres of mountain and desert. Avoiding land mines and bullets, he spent months travelling through Iraq and Iran negotiating a way into Afghanistan.

Joining forces with the war-weary Mujahedeen, he found unexpected allies and unforgettable friends.

'The author manages to condense a lifetime experience into a cleverly crafted, exceedingly well-written story. ...Loseby writes with great skill and compassion.' Waikato Times. 02/03/02.

'It's ... an inspiring read which could well have you turning to your nearest and saying, "Honey, I've got a great idea ..."'. Weekend Herald. 23-24/02/02.
