feisty wimmin

by Ros on Nov 3, 2012

Intrepid woman of the Victorian era writes a perceptive, witty and empathetic account of her travels, this time along the Nile. Empathy with local people and their difficult lives as well as sharply observed vignettes of both local people and fellow Europeans reflect what is still -often sadly- apparent to those of us lucky enough to at least have been to Egypt. Contributes to understanding that the history of European imperialism may underlie current upheavals.
