The Desert and the Sown: The Syrian Adventures of the Female Lawrence of Arabia
Gertrude Bell (Author)
Usually delivers within 2 weeks.
DescriptionA seeming contradiction, Gertrude Bell was both a proper Victorian and an intrepid explorer of the Arabian wilderness. She was a close friend of T. E. Lawrence, and played an important role in creating the modern map of the Middle East after World War I. The Desert and the Sown is a chronicle, illustrated by over 160 photos, of Bell's 1905 journey from Jericho to Antioch, a land of warring tribes under Turkish control.
