The Southern Gates of Arabia: A Journey in the Hadramaut – Freya Stark

I tried to get into this, but the traumas of the new job meant that this travelogue just didn’t hit the right spot for a relaxing bed time read – the main factors conspiring against it both stem from its being written in the ?1930s? – the narrative style and the relaince on physical geography descriptions are both hard to get to grips with.

I’ll try again sometime when I’m more relaxed.
