EXPLORING CENTRAL ASIA: THROUGH CENTRAL ASIA
Hungerford believes a great change had been effected in the late 19th Century, in the measure of information about regions of farther India in the North West. He claims that all that was known of the frontier geography was narrowed to a few lines running westward from India, and terminating in the cities of Afghan and Baluch highlands.
The hills which faced us on our own border, onto which we could step from the plains, were still shrouded in mystery, and our knowledge of the people was as shadowy as that of their land. In this study it is hoped that a few minor frontier episodes would be rescued from oblivion.
