London: John Murray, 1857. Second Edition. Translated from the original unpublished manuscript By Capt. William Jesse and edited By H.D. Seymour. Ferrier had been recruited to organize and drill the Persian army, but his opposition to Russian interests in Persia led to his dismissal. "In Afghanistan he started from Herat for India, intending to travel through Balkh and Kabul, but, being unable to do this, had passed through the Hazara country to the west of Kabul, and had reached Ghur. He was sent back from Ghur, but had at least the satisfaction of exploring an entirely unknown region of Afghanistan."
