The sabres of paradise by Lesley Blanch( Book )

56 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Caucasus--a region of supreme natural beauty and fiercely proud warriors--has throughout history been characterized by violence and turmoil. During the Great Caucasus War of 1834-1859, the warring mountain tribes of Daghestan and Chechnya united under the charismatic leadership of the Muslim chieftain Imam Shamyl, the "Lion of Daghestan", and held at bay the invading Russian army for nearly 25 years. Lesley Blanch vividly recounts the epic story of their heroic and bloody struggle for freedom and the life of a man still legendary in the Caucasus."--Publisher's description

This charming little book was first published in 1956 when people in England were still enduring post-war restrictions on both traveling and eating. As Lesley Blanch says in her introduction to a later edition 'benign fate whisked me elsewhere to follow less restricted ways, traveling widely and eating wildly.' She said: 'I don't belong in England, I don't belong anywhere, it is rather restful ... I have met everybody and known nobody.' Seductive and piquant like its author, this is 'an appetizer for enthusiastic beginners' rather than a basic cookbook. Lesley Blanch's gastronomic world tour inc
