Through Persia on a side-saddle by Ella Sykes( Book )

In 1894 Captain Sykes was asked by the British Foreign Office to establish a Consulate in Persia (present day Iran) in the districts of Kerman and Baluchistan. Only ten days before his departure, he asked his sister if she would accompany him. Ella Sykes was "delighted by the prospect." This tome of over 400 pages is a record of the years she spent in Persia, a country which became a "much-loved home." In the Preface, Sykes writes, "I believe that I am the first European woman who has visited Kerman and Persian Baluchistan, my experiences may perhaps interest other women who feel the 'Wanderlust' but are unable to gratify their longing for adventure." Indeed, her keen powers of observation, in combination with her gentle and engaging writing style, make this a wonderful read. The text is illustrated with more than thirty diverse, and well-chosen, photographs. If you want to be wholly engrossed in another country, in another era, accompany Sykes as she rides side-saddle through late 19th Century Persia
