In the years immediately following World War II, a young American woman, married and living in Afghanistan against her parents' wishes, suddenly and mysteriously disappears. Michener's magnificent novel combines historical fact with a gripping adventure of romance, danger, and intrigue as it follows the story of the military man who is assigned the task of finding and returning the young woman to her distraught family. Caravans captures the tension of the postwar period, the sweep of Afghanistan's remarkable history, the allure of the past, and the inescapable pull of the future.--From publisher description.

First Michener for me since college--Hawaii. Pretty good tale with some interesting Afghani lore in light of our current investment and involvement in one of the muslim stinkholes of the world. I do not share his respect for the filth that is islam--a religion which, like syphylis, should be eradicated in the ignorant backwards cesspools where it exists

I have read a few of his books - this one was the best yet (better than Caribbean, The Source). Although it is about an Afghanistan that probably doesn't exist anymore - its a captivating story with beautiful imagery throughout. Definitely a wonderful read.
