KIRKUS REVIEW

Subtitled ""A Traveller in Modern Turkey,"" this is the standardized record of a young woman who bravely travels alone in a strange and far off land. The fact that this time it is an Australian young woman is not quite enough of a switch to make a great deal of difference to the reader. A vision of Turkey from the island of Rhodes determined Nancy Phelan to travel there; her sojourn lasted several months. Aside from the impressions and encounters, there are the facts of travel. The Turkish Government Tourist Bureau will no doubt be upset by the nauseous description of the Oteli in the smaller villages, but Miss Phelan's observations are regrettably factual. Transportation has improved since her trip, and there are now excellent hotels in many of the larger towns.
