About the Book The Wandering Falcon is the unforgettable story of a boy known as Tor Baz â€”the black falconâ€”who wanders between tribes in the remote tribal areas where Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan meet, defying his fate and surviving against all odds. The world he inhabits is fragile, and unforgiving, one that is fast changing as it confronts modernity. In Jamil Ahmed's award-winning debut, this highly traditional, honour-bound culture is revealed from the inside for the first time with vivid colour and imagination.
