Author(s): Lesley Blanch

Biography

Originally published in 1954, "The Wilder Shores of Love "is the classic biography of four nineteenth-century European women who leave behind the industrialized west for Arabia in search of romance and fulfillment. Hailed by "The Daily Telegraph "as "enthralling to read," Lesley Blanch's first book tells the story of Isabel Burton, the wife and traveling companion of the explorer Richard Burton; Jane Digby, who exchanged European society for an adventure in loving; Aimee Dubucq de Rivery, a Frenchwoman captured by pirates who became a member of the Turkish sultan's harem; and Isabelle Eberhardt, a Swiss woman who dressed as a man and lived among the Arabs of Algeria.
