Many Alexander-fans and interested travellers are familiar with Freya Stark's extensive literature about the world she discovered and disclosed to her readers all through the 20th century.
I greatly enjoyed and used her book Alexander’s Path, where she explores every single road, pass, river and trail of Lycia to find the best-fitted passage for Alexander to take his army across that mountain backbone. I commented on her book in detail in an earlier blog Alexander’s Path by Freya Stark.
Another chapter of her extensive travel is mentioned on my blog under The Minaret of Djam by Freya Stark.
These two books are only a small sample of her extensive writing. Yet the person of Freya Stark is worth being known more closely.
That is precisely the article's content written by Joshua J. Mark on World History as he illustrates and underscores Freya Stark's remarkable life. I simply copied his post hereafter, but the original can also be read directly on World History.
