Freya Stark: Passionate Nomad
Jane Fletcher Geniesse
Passionate Nomad - The Life of Freya Stark
New York: Random House, 1999.
A neat analysis of the enviable achievements of Dame Freya, whose travel adventures were the subject of her own thirty or so classic books, including eight of published letters.
She was alternately vilified and lionized by her contemporaries and overcame all their objections and many illnesses to live to be over 100, remaining a courageous pioneer whose observations were always fresh and often read a bit like poetry.
Book has one small dent to front.
