"This is the magnificent account of the people of that exotic land, the Caucasus, their heroic leader Shamyl and their courageous thirty year fight to stem the tide of Russian imperialism. It is also a history of 19th century Russian expansion that does much to explain the Russian character and the foreign policy of the modern-day Soviet Union. But above all it is the incredible story of one man, Shamyl, who personifies freedom fighting single-handed against autocracy and tyranny"--Back cover

This charming little book was first published in 1956 when people in England were still enduring post-war restrictions on both travelling and eating. As Lesley Blanch says in her introduction to a later edition 'benign fate whisked me elsewhere to follow less restricted ways, travelling 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 includes eighty recipes each prefaced by an account of where they were first tasted, or with some amusing anecdote

<Div>Lesley Blanch was four when the mysterious Traveller first blew into her nursery, swathed in Siberian furs and full of the fairytales of Russia. She was twenty when he swept out of her life, leaving her love-lorne and in the grips of a passionate obsession. The search to recapture the love of her life, and the Russia that he had planted within her, takes her to Siberia and beyond, journeying deep into the romantic terrain of the mind's eye. Part travel book, part love story, Lesley Blanch's Journey into the Mind's Eye is pure intoxication.</div>
