Gertude Bell

by Reva on Feb 25, 2008

This is a great book about a bigger than life person. What I found interesting about the book was her time in Iraq. When you read about what she confronted every day with the wide assortment of personalities and ethic groups, it could be taken from today's headlines. I found her life so interesting, I read 2 more books about her and plan to order a couple that she wrote about her travels. It is definitely a book to pass on.
