Reader's note

A wonderful copy of The Valleys of the Assassins by Freya Stark. This classic travelogue is an account of Stark’s travels in Luristan, the mountainous area between Iraq and Iran. On a very limited budget, and often with only a single guide for company, her journey takes her through remote valleys and has her engaging with the local, nomadic peoples. Her writing on the people she encounters is rich with sensitivity and understanding, and she recounts their cultures and tales with her richly descriptive narrative. This vintage book is one among a bounty of stunning classic literature vintage books and obscure gems on our second-hand bookstore!
