Rosalind Atkinson | 6 comments normal sized slim paperback, read in 2006, could have been 10-20 years old already, a non-fiction collection of stories of FOUR (definitely) woman travellers in the Orient. One was Isabella Burton, one lived with bedoin and in a harem. There is a description of arab culture from one of them as being able to "just be" and not be doing all the time. I think all the women were from the roughly victorian period. Colour image on the cover.
