The redoubtable Peggy Haswell was a young pioneer, flying to The Gambia just after World War Two. She was an agronomist who was sent to the remote parts of Africa to study how the villagers lived. Facing crocodiles, snakes and scorpions, not to mention the local magician practising his ‘medicine’, she spent months with only her African assistant for company. But, later, with other Europeans and the locals working alongside them, Peggy and her companions made the best of their adventures. Travels to India followed, again into the heartlands of the villages and then on to Thailand and many other countries of the Far East. Despite difficulties and dangers which she tackled head on, Peggy was never put off and has spent her life travelling the globe, studying and lecturing. Behind the Curtain is the story of a remarkable life spent just as the author intended.
