Summary
Turning her back on her privileged life in Victorian England, Gertrude Bell journeyed the world and became fascinated with all things Arab. Traveling the length and breadth of the Arab region, armed with a love for its language and its people, she not only produced several enormously popular books based on her experiences, but became instrumental to the British foreign office. Janet Wallach reveals a woman whose achievements and independent spirit were especially remarkable for her times
