Freya Stark was the kind of woman who had to see for herself. RIDING TO THE TIGRIS is her story of a horseback trek across the high Turkish plateau and on to the Tigris River. She traveled alone (except for muleteers, provided by the Turkish government). Her chance companions, a young schoolmaster and his violin, a jester with his mad son, and an occasional police escort--spring to life in her vivid prose.
