LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
London: Sampson Low, Marston & Co , 1898. "Taking with him a single Henry Express rifle, a no. 12 smooth-bore, a small stock of medicines, some warm clothing, and his faithful English servant, he set out to cross 2,000 miles of Asia Minor. Burnaby wished to see for himself whether the recent atrocities in Bulgaria attributed to the Turks were really true, and to view the tense relationship between the two countries of Turkey and Russia. His five-month journey across mountainous and snow-bound territory brought him in contact with Turks, Armenians, Greeks, Circassians, Kurds, and Persians of all classes, enlightening the rich tapestry of this multicultural terrain. His entire expedition is recounted here in vivid detail, reflecting the hardship and humor of his exciting travels."
