Summary
Eight-year-old Mir Hussain is a bright, cheeky boy who lives in a cave and owns virtually nothing. In post-Taliban Afghanistan there is no guarantee that Mir will survive - there is sickness, dirt, little water and food. Yet he finds fun where he can, and his playground is the rubble and tunnels of the destroyed Buddhas of Bamiyan, the shelled and burnt-out town bazaar and the orchard of the local militia
