|About the Author||Freya Stark (1893-1993), called *the poet of travel*, was the doyenne of Middle East travel writers and one of the most courageous and adventurous female explorers in history. She toured extensively through Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq and Southern Arabia, where she became the first western woman to travel through the Hadhramaut. Usually solo, she ventured to places few Europeans had ever been. Her travels earned her the title of Dame and huge public acclaim and her many, now classic, books include Winter in Arabia, Travels in the Near East, Ionia, The Southern Gates of Arabia, Alexander's Path, Dust in the Lion's Paw, East is West and Valleys of the Assassins.|

|Editorial Review||“The Minaret of Djam is filled with history and introspection but also with people … But the heart of the book lies in Kabul, where Stark looks out over the garden of the British Embassy.” -- The New Yorker Praise for Freya Stark: *One of the finest travel writers of our century.* -- The New Yorker *Her books make Stark a remarkable figure under any circumstances. Having been a woman whose roamings through Middle Eastern deserts and mountains put her in the top ranks of the fabled Royal Geographical Society makes her more so.* -- Richard Bernstein, The New York Times *...it is beautiful writing that encapsulates not only the history, but the feel, the smell, the sensation and sheer wonder of what she discovers... enriching and enjoyable.* --London Turkish Gazette|
