I re- read Sir Richard Burton's "Falconry in the Valley of the Indus" recenty...this man had an amazing life and his wife Isabelle Burton put up with his absences of years and years with great aplomb. Read "Journey to Mecca" and find out how he infiltrated Mecca disguised with walnut oil (to make him look darker)...an incredible story and life. I also strongly suggest the book "The Wilder Shores of Love" it sounds like a romance novel but it's actually the stories of amazing women throughout history...really fascinating.
