For A Pagan Song Summary

For A Pagan Song by Jonny Bealby

`Entrancing. . . compelling. . . completely engaging. . . the very best of the summer's travel books' DAILY MAIL FOR A PAGAN SONG is the story of how Jonny Bealby followed in the footsteps of Peachey Carnehan and Daniel Dravot from Kipling's `The Man Who Would Be King'. Travelling across the remote parts of India and Pakistan and into war-torn Afghanistan, he seeks the old pagan tribes of Kafiristan over whom Carnehan and Dravot ruled. But this is more than a travel story, it is a story of a man searching his past to find out who he really is. Picturing himself seated by a roaring fire, listening to the song of a pagan chief, Jonny set out to discover the ancient tribes of Kafiristan - and in the meantime discovered himself. `Rudyard Kipling's THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING is a classic tale from the golden age of Victorian adventure. By following in the footsteps of Peachey Carnehan and Daniel Dravot, from the heat and dust of Marwar Junction to the wild mountains of Kafiristan, Jonny Bealby courageously echoes the spirit of those daring times' MICHAEL CAINE
