Reflection on the life and travels of Freya Stark (1893-1993), superbly illustrated with her photographs.
Inscribed by the author, scholar Malise Ruthven, to Jane Geniesse: “For Jane, a fellow traveller, with every good wish for your journey, with love from Malise”
Ruthven was Freya Stark’s godson and is a noted scholar of Islam and the Middle East. Geniesse subsequently wrote Passionate Nomad (1999), a well-received biography of Freya Stark.
