Detailed Product Description
London, Century, 1985. 287 pp, map, index. Used softcover. Near Fine.

Third part of Freya Stark's (1893-1993) autobiography, in which she describes her life and especially her travels she undertook between 1933 and 1939. During this time, her first 4 works were published, starting with The Valley of the Assassins in 1934. The present work mostly focuses on Stark's travels in South Arabia and is illustrated with images of photographs she took herself. It is a very personal account of her life in general and travel experiences, alongside significant historical, political, geographical and anthropological information about the places she visited. This writing style was quite unique and unusual for her time, but since she was one of the first European travelers in parts of Southern Arabia "unique and unusual" were, in a positive way, accurate descriptors.
