Shoot Me First: A cattleman in Taliban country. Twenty-four years in the hotspots of Pakistan and Afghanistan is a gripping personal account of life in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The author offers intriguing insights into the culture of the tribal territories that straddle the two countries.

This is home to the Taliban, an untamed land which continues to absorb so much of the world's attention and military endeavour. Lock is shrewd and laconic but above all compassionate. His experience of the world's two major religions deserves careful consideration.

Crisp, beautiful and revealing. Valuable for anyone trying to build an appreciation of Islamic societies. And that should be all of us. John Anderson AO Former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia

Lock's adventures are probed for meaning so that the reader may have a deeper comprehension of a region frequently in our headlines but seldom in our understanding. Lynn Arnold AO Former Premier of South Australia

The raw reality of daily life for ordinary people, up close and personal. Lock gives the most pressing global issues of our time a human face. Mark Durie Author of The Third Choice

Your book brought back so many memories. I couldn't help but cry. Habiba Fugitive from the Taliban and Afghan refugee

Supporting micro-hydroelectric systems, empowering Afghan widows and overseeing a massive eye-care program, Grant and Janna Lock's development work in Afghanistan and Pakistan followed their notable success as cattle breeders in South Australia.
