No railway journey on Earth can equal the Trans-Siberian between Moscow and Vladivostock. It is not just its vast length and the great variety of the lands and climes through which it passes. It is not just its history as the line that linked the huge territories which are Russia together. It is a dream which calls countless travellers to the adventure of the longest railway in the world.

Women travelers in Egypt : from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century by Deborah Manley( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Until late in the nineteenth century, few guidebooks acknowledged the presence of women as travelers--although women had been traveling around the world for centuries. Women's accounts of their journeys, distinct from those of male travelers, began to appear more frequently in the early nineteenth century, and Egypt was a popular destination. Women had more time to watch and describe; they were more dependent on the Egyptian staff; they spent time both in the harems of Cairo and with the women they met along the Nile. Some of them, like Sarah Belzoni, Sophia Poole, and Ellen Chennells, spoke Arabic. Others wrote engagingly of their experiences as observers of an exotic culture, with special access to some places no man could ever go. From Eliza Fay's description of arriving in Egypt in 1779 to Rosemary Mahoney's daring trip down the Nile in a rowboat in 2006, this lively collection of writing by over forty women travelers includes Lady Evelyn Cobbold, Isabella Bird, Winifred Blackman, Norma Lorimer, Harriet Martineau, Florence Nightingale, Amelia Edwards, and Lucie Duff Gordon."--
Traveling through Sinai : from the fourth to the twenty-first century( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this anthology, Deborah Manley and Sahar Abdel-Hakim have collected dozens of accounts and observations from travelers who have written about Sinai, its people, its sights, and its historical and biblical landmarks." "Starting with Egeria, a fourth-century Christian who relates her visit to Mt. Sinai and the Burning Bush, Traveling through Sinai offers a diverse collection of voices over the centuries. Among them are the German friar Felix Fabri, who visited in 1492, and nineteenth-century antiquarian William Flinders Petrie, giving his impressions of the Bedouins of the peninsula. French novelist Alexandre Dumas writes of meeting two monks in the desert carrying a letter signed by Napoleon, while others describe crossing the canal at Suez, the ancient inscriptions of Wadi Mukattab, and the harrowing experiences of desert travel." "For many of the visitors included here, their ultimate destination was St. Catherine's Monastery, a major site for Christian pilgrims since its founding in the fourth century. With an array of narratives from the writings of Procopius, Sir John Mandeville, John Lewis Burckhardt, Isabella Bird, Pierre Loti, Michael Haag, and others, Traveling through Sinai offers a varied portrait of this fabled peninsula that has drawn travelers and pilgrims to it for centuries."--Jacket

Saddling the dogs : journeys through Egypt and the Near East by Diane Fortenberry( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the absence of horses, saddle the dogs. This Arab proverb, suggesting the uncompromising determination of nomads to keep moving, whatever the obstacles, epitomizes also the travelling ethos of many early visitors to the 'exotic East'. The journeys examined here are linked by the light they shed on the experience of travel in Egypt, Greece and the Ottoman Balkans, and the Near East from the 17th to the early 20th century not so much what was seen as how one got there and how one got around once arrived; the vicissitudes and travails, both expected and strange that characterised the passage
