The Legend of the Apache Kid

English prof-slash-cowboy Raine Magrath knows Johnny Bravo is an airhead. A beautiful young Apache film-making genius airhead, but still. They meet in a hot tub during Johnny's first film festival, but he bolts before his work is even shown. When Johnny drifts back to Taos a year later, they slide into a slow cowboy two-step so easily Raine starts…

For the past three decades, millions of Afghans have had to make a choice – to join the Russian army forcibly under threat of death or to be ripped from the arms of their loved ones and leave their long established homes with painful tears and heartbreak. Incredible miseries and difficulties have been encountered by Afghans trying to get through deserts and mountains to the borders of Iran and Pakistan. Some who were financially able eventually came to Western countries.

Afghans are still suffering from the aftermath of these black storms which have left them struggling to live under torn tents. These people, especially the children, are hungry and barefoot with a lack of education and safety, terrified to return or stay in unsafe Afghanistan. A couple of stories in this book express the traditional rules of our society that turn into unfortunate situations.

The Only Candle is a book of gripping stories that try to illustrate the miseries of a basically peaceful nation that faces torture and death daily under Communist intolerance.

The people of Afghanistan are looking forward to get their country back with peace, human rights, economic infrastructure, social justice and a democracy allowing them to choose the government of their choice.
