Type : Author
Artist :
Medium : Deceased Person
Description : Dame Freya Stark (from the UK) wrote over 24 books from her travels in the Middle East starting in the 1930s. She is still read today. She was a solitary traveller in an age and place where women rarely went at all - especially alone alone. She travelled by camel, pony and mule through Persia, Arabia, Turkey and Afghanistan, often in areas no European had ever seen - men included. Her style of writing and grasp of antiquity bring to life ancient civilizations. 'There are not so many places left where magic reigns without interruption and of all those I know, the coast of Lycia was the most magical.' Painting by Herbert Olivier, 1923.
