Lela Meinhardt, a tribal art trader in Afghanistan, travelled and traded with migratory Afghan tribes from 1975 to 1980, a time when Americans, and their money, were welcomed by the Afghan people. Lela's adventures, recorded in the letters she sent to her husband, Paul, are more the stuff of legend than a modern journey.

Paul Meinhardt writes about his wife of forty-one years who survived a tank attack, but succumbed to cancer in 2000. Now remarried, Paul researches the 21st century family, and the role of the family in the American economy. Always a political progressive and supporter of women's rights, Paul and Lela agreed to an open marriage during the time she traveled in Afghanistan. Paul's credentials reach almost to a Ph.D. and span many years of research and training in corporate America.
