In this book, which begins in the pre-partition days, a young girl Abida's interest in the history of Punjab is developed when she asks her uncle to tell her about the history of 'the land of five rivers' and to take her to explore the historic sites of this land.
As she learns about foreign invasions, Buddhist influence, romantic legends, the contribution of the Mughal emperors and the British, Abida is so fascinated by the story of Punjab that she grows up to become a historian herself!
Dr Hamida Khuhro was educated at the universities of Karachi, Cambridge, London, and Oxford. Dr Khuhro was a historian and she taught at the Oxford University, and at the Karachi and Sindh Universities. She had twice served as the Minister of Education and Literacy, Government of Sindh.
