In breve: Read it to understand the places we are sending our troops, or read it to be taken away completely from whatever troubles your urban or susburban psyche, but read Arabian Sands.
In breve: Quale il luogo pił piovoso del mondo?
In breve: In the 1920s, a young J. R. Ackerley spent several months in India as the personal Secretary to the maharajah of a small principality. In his journals, Ackerley recorded the Maharajah's fantastically eccentric habits and the shambling day-to-day life of his court. Hindoo Holiday is an intimate and very funny account of an exceedingly strange place.
In breve: Wilfred Thesiger's classic account of the eight years he spent living with the tribespeople of the Marshes of Iraq. First published in 1964 to great acclaim, this book by one of the century's greatest explorers describes a way of life which lasted for thousands of years, but has now all but vanished. Travelling with his medicine boxes and his teams of canoemen around the junction between the Tigris and the Euphrates, Thesiger visited nearly every village in the Central Marshes and came to know intimately the people who inhabit this landscape of islands, lakes and waterways, living with them in their reed houses and sharing their unique way of life.
