Beyond Euphrates book.

Freya Stark (1893-1993) had this book published by Murray in 1951. It is autobiographical composed of extracts from her diaries and letters between May 1929 and November 1933, but refers back in the 1st Chapter to her first autobiographical work "Traveller's Prelude" published a year earlier. In the second chapter we have a glimpse of her father Robert's life in Nelson, British Columbia, in the West of Canada when she visited him late in 1928. He had separated from her mother and was living a rugged existence there, still painting but in semi-retirement.

What a woman. Freya Stark not only went swanning around the wilds of Iraq and Persia on her own in the 1920s and 30s, learning Arabic and Persian, travelling where few Westerners had ever been, she also wrote about her experiences with great beauty and wisdom. A favourite passage: "Yet even when I felt most alone, I cannot ever remember wavering about my own path; I felt that other people might know what was good, but not that they knew better than I did what was good for me".
