Beschreibung:

Lesley Blanch, MBE, was born in 1904. At heart a nomad, she has travelled extensively although her great passion has always been for the Middle East and Russia. Married to the French diplomat and writer, Romain Gary, for 18 years, Blanch became arts features editor of Vogue in the thirties and turned to writing and journalism soon after. She is Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and bestselling author of The Wilder Shores of Love and Pierre Loti (also Tauris Parke Paperbacks). At the age of 100 she completed her long-awaited biography, the sequel to her acclaimed Journey Into the Mind's Eye. Philip Marsden is a novelist and travel writer. His books include The Crossing Place: A Journey Among the Armenians (Winner of the Somerset Maugham Award, 1994) and The Spirit-Wrestlers and Other Survivors of the Russian Century (Winner of the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award, 1999).
During the Great Caucasus War, the mountain tribes of Daghestan and Chechnya held at bay the invading Russian army, under the leadership of Imam Shamyl. Lesley Blanch recounts the epic story of their heroic and bloody struggle for freedom, and the life of a man still legendary in the Caucasus.
