CAUCUS -- RACE by Henrietta Sands Merrick


Email this review


The travel record of one who travels for the sheer joy of new experiences and strange places. Her travels take her, this time, to the Near and the Far East, -- Persia, Iraq, Syria, Java, Bali, Sumatra, Siam, Cambodia, India, the Himalayas, Tibet, Burma, China, Japan. Without attempting an exhaustive study of the social, economic and political conditions in each country, she manages to convey, through occasional digressions, a sensitivity to conditions, a valuation of peoples, an understanding of the situation that gives deeper value to her vivid picture of personal experiences and ways of life among the people she visited. Good travel for fireside reading.
