Description
"To those bred under an elaborate social order few such moments of exhilaration can come as that which stands at the threshold of wild travel," posited English travel writer, diplomat, archaeologist, and spy Gertrude Bell (18681926), who explored and mapped Greater Syria, Mesopotamia, and Arabia at a time when women rarely undertook such journeys. The basis for Werner Herzog's 2015 film Queen of the Desert starring Nicole Kidman, this book features extracts from Bell's travelogues Persian Pictures (1894) and Syria: The Desert and the Sown (1907).
