Among The Wild Tribes Of The Afghan Frontier - Theodore Leighton Pennell (1867–1912), was a Christian missionary and doctor who lived among the tribes of Afghanistan. He founded a missionary hospital in Bannu in the North-West Frontier of British India, now Pakistan. For his work he received the Kaisar-i-Hind Medal for Public Service in India. He published a work on his life under the title Among the wild tribes of the Afghan frontier in 1908. During 1904 Pennell travelled through the Punjab by bicycle, mixing with the local people, with one Afghan companion. He dressed as a sadhu, and was often penniless. An insightful book into the complex life style of the Pashtun and the war-like ways of tribal society. An area of interest still to modern readers.
