“What an astonishing book this is! Rosita Forbes was not just intrepid but extremely intelligent, not just adventurous but deeply curious, not just a fine writer but a shrewd and sympathetic observer as well. It’s rare to find a person at once so iconoclastic, unconventional and fearless and yet so attuned to her fellow human beings across the globe.”

Rosemary Mahoney, author of Down the Nile: Alone in a Fisherman’s Skiff
In the 1920s and ’30s, the extraordinary Rosita Forbes explored the Libyan desert, sailed across the Red Sea to Yemen, trekked more than a thousand miles into remote Abyssinia, and traveled in Southeast Asia and China, Morocco, Turkey, Iraq, Persia, and Afghanistan. She wrote some thirty books about these and other journeys, was a widely published journalist, a documentary filmmaker, and the editor of a pioneering women’s magazine. Forbes was also a Jazz Age style icon, known as much for her glamour and charm as for her splendid adventures and the engaging and insightful books she wrote about them. This is the first anthology of her travel writings.

Forbes’s travel tales remain fresh and engaging. They are also valuable historical documents. She went to places that would be forever changed by war or revolution and whose histories are central to our understanding of the post-September 11 world. She told her readers what she saw, what she learned, and what it felt like to be there, in her own inimitable style—lively, witty, informative, and opinionated. And she conveyed the moments of terror and tedium, exhaustion and exhilaration, frustration and contentment of life on the road.
