Arabian Sands is Wilfred Thesiger's record of his extraordinary journey through the parched "Empty Quarter" of Arabia. Educated at Eton and Oxford, Thesiger was repulsed by the softness and rigidity of Western life -- "the machines, the calling cards, the meticulously aligned streets." In the spirit of T. E. Lawrence, he set out to explore the deserts of Arabia, traveling among peoples who had never seen a European and considered it their duty to kill Christian infidels. His now-classic account is invaluable to understanding the modern Middle East.

Dame Freya Madeline Stark, Mrs Perowne, DBE (1893 – 1993) was a British explorer and travel writer. She wrote more than two dozen books on her travels in the Middle East and Afghanistan, as well as several autobiographic works and essays. She was one of the first non-Arabians to travel through the southern Arabian deserts. By 1931 she had completed three dangerous treks into the wilderness of western Iran, parts of which no Westerner had ever visited, and had located the long-fabled Valleys of the Assassins (Hashshashins). She described these explorations in The Valleys of the Assassins (1934). In 1935 she travelled to the Hadhramaut, the hinterland of southern Arabia, where only a handful of Western explorers had previously ventured, never as far or as widely as she went. Stark's first extensive travels after the war were in Turkey, which were the basis of this book on Ionia (1954). The unearthly beauty in her writing and the rare sensitivity in her perceptions of people, events and geography are here to be savored: "As we rode back, and the valley lay shining before us with the mounds of its cemeteries or habitations perhaps plainly visible under the folds of the ground, the great age of the world seemed to be revealed with a sudden poignancy: here men had wandered for thousands of years, their origin and their end unknown. Their dead lie thicker than the living amid these hills."

In journey that was both whimsical and historical, Giles Whittell followed the trail taken by Stephen Graham, a Scottish reporter for The Times of London in 1914, from the Caspian Sea to Siberia. As he made his way from Volgograd across central Asia to the towering peaks of the Altai Mountains, where China, Kirghizstan, Mongolia and Siberia meet, Whittell paused to jot down dramatic thumbnail sketches of place and scenery and humorous observations. A resilient and persistent traveler, Giles occasionally got off course, and at one point talked his way into watching a rocket launch at Baikonur, a once top-secret Soviet space station.
