Extracts from two of Bell's most compelling works of travel writing, Persian Pictures, and Syria: the Desert and the Sown, as well as some of her most fascinating letters. A woman far ahead of her time, Gertrude gained a first from Oxford at a time when very few subjects were even open to women. She went on to take an active interest in politics before embarking on her one-woman travels across the Middle East. She chronicled her journeys through Iraq, Persia, Syria, and beyond and her important diplomatic work, with characteristic wit and incisiveness.
