The Tartan Turban: In Search of Alexander Gardner

John Keay

The story of Alexander Haughton Campbell Gardner and his epic adventures in innermost Asia: inspiration to Macdonald Fraser, saviour of Lahore, colonel in Ranjit Singh’s army, and most intrepid of traveller-mercenaries. The twilight years of this astounding Scots-American were spent in Kashmir, wearing tartan native dress.
