Description - Along the Bosphorus by Susan E Wallace
Excerpt from Along the Bosphorus: And Other Sketches It is like adding a story to the Tower of Babel to attempt anything new in these old regions where there were settlements before the first of Moguls was enthroned at Delhi, when Rome was the name given to a few straw-built sheds on the Palatine. Happily there are always young readers to whom the world is fresh as when the fairest of women first opened her eyes and the evening and the morning were the seventh day. So I take heart for my journal notes. At last we behold with our own eyes the sight that has been a longing and a despair to us for more than thirty years. The sacred sea - next to Galilee - where men strove with gods in the ancient times when the heavens were nearer to us. The moon is at its full and the mild air, the pleasant boat, the slow, soft motion are enchanting. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
