From the cover: “This magnificent novel of princely Indian states and the British Corps of Guides, the guardians of the North-West Frontier, spans the quarter century from the Mutiny to the catastrophe of the Second Afghan War. In Paul Scott’s words, ‘Well, you know, it’s marvellous stuff. It had me on the edge of my seat. Her grasp of history, her knowledge of it are admirable. Her depiction of the Indian scene is in my view better than Kipling’s ever was.’
