(Neal Charnoff) Historian Matthew Wilson was a member of the British Army living in Pakistan in the late 1960's. Over the next 30 years, he and his family made a number of return trips to Central Asia, notably Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

Wilson wrote extensive notes, kept journals and took photographs of his travels. He has recounted his adventures in a new book, "The Land of the War Elephants." Matthew Wilson is now a part-time resident of Barnard, Vermont, and joins us from our Norwich studios. (To hear the interview, click on the "Listen" icon.)

"The Land of War Elephants" is published by Nomad Press.
