From the Sahara to Samarkand

Selected Travel Writings of Rosita Forbes 1919-1937

Book Description

The extraordinary Rosita Forbes explored the Libyan desert, sailed across the Red Sea, and trekked more than a thousand miles into remote Abyssinia. She wrote some thirty books about these and other journeys, as well as biographies, histories, novels, and memoirs.

Her story deserves to be retold and her writing discovered by a new generation.
