Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to Al-Madinah and Mecca – Volume 1

Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to Al-Madinah and Mecca - Volume 1 by Sir Richard Francis Burton

Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to Al-Madinah and Mecca – Volume 1 by Sir Richard Francis Burton

Sir Richard Francis Burton was an English explorer, translator, writer, soldier, orientalist, ethnologist, linguist, poet, hypnotist, fencer and diplomat. He was known for his travels and explorations within Asia and Africa as well as his extraordinary knowledge of languages and cultures. According to one count, he spoke 29 European, Asian, and African languages.

Burton’s best-known achievements include traveling in disguise to Mecca, his seven years in India gave Burton a familiarity with the customs and behavior of Muslims and prepared him to attempt a Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca and, in this case, Medina). It was this journey, undertaken in 1853, which first made Burton famous. He had planned it whilst traveling disguised among the Muslims of Sindh, and had laboriously prepared for the adventure by study and practice. Burton’s own account of his journey is given in A Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to Al-Medinah and Meccah.

East By West: A Journey in the Recess

East By West: A Journey in the Recess by Sir Henry W. Lucy

East By West: A Journey in the Recess by Sir Henry W. Lucy

East by West: a Journey in the Recess is an account of British journalist Henry Lucy’s travels across America and on to the Far East during the parliamentary recess in 1883.

Lucy was one of the most influential journalists of his day and, as “Toby M.P.”, a noted humorist in Punch magazine. His acute powers of observation and light touch make this a most engaging book. It is a fascinating insight into the Englishman’s travels abroad within two decades of the American Civil War and the end of Japanese isolationism.

This is the first of two volumes covering his journey with his wife. This first volume includes his travels in America and in Japan, including the Atlantic and Pacific crossings by steamer. Volume II, continues his experiences in Japan and India, returning home via Aden and the Suez Canal.

Running Water

Running Water by A. E. W. Mason

Running Water by A. E. W. Mason

Running Water is a tale of romantic adventure. Though much of the story takes place in England, the real setting here is in the high Alps, in the range of Mont Blanc near Chamonix and Courmayeur. Here it is that Captain Hilary Chayne arrives, having spent the prior four years of his army service on the shores of the Red Sea, dreaming all the time of his return to the Alps, to the world of rock, ice, and snow, to mountaineering with all its challenges and joys, and to its comradeship. And here it is too that he meets the young and beautiful Sylvia Thesiger, a girl already in love with the high mountains, and seeking in them an escape, as far as possible, from her unpleasant and domineering mother.
Is it necessary to add that disappointments. problems, misunderstandings, and outright villainies, ensue to complicate the course of true love? After the twists and turns of novel’s English midsection, the setting shifts back to the high Alps, and the final, climactic scene is played out on the heights of the Italian face of the Mont Blanc. This is the Brenva — where thousands of feet of rock and glacier sweep steeply up to reach the highest point in western Europe. It is an Alpine route that today, over century later, even experienced climbers still find a challenge.
