Description
 
The story of a young American working on the brutal fault line where the war on terror meets the war on drugs. Joel Hafvenstein signed up for a year in Afghanistan’s rugged Helmand Province, the heart of the country’s opium trade. He was running an aid program with two goals: to help tens of thousands of opium poppy farmers make a legal living, and to win hearts and minds away from the former Taliban gov’t. He and his friends were soon caught up in the intrigues of drug warlords. At the height of his team’s success, the Taliban attacked, killing his colleagues. These ambushes heralded a Taliban resurgence across the country and showed the weaknesses in America’s strategy. “A riveting story of intrigue, adventure, and tragedy.”
