Journey to Kars

Philip Glazebrook

– A Modern Traveller in the Ottoman Lands –

“For Victorian travellers a trip to Turkey was a leap into the dark of Islam. Fascinated by their accounts of the far-flung, down-at-heel Ottoman Empire, novelist and traveller Philip Glazebrook followed their footsteps. His destination was Kars, the legendary city within view of Mount Ararat where the Ark was stranded.

Through the old Serbian and Greek provinces and islands, through the ruined cities of Asia Minor, to Kars and then back by Trezibond, Istanbul and the Balkan capitals – his elegant, entertaining and thoughtful account is a quite remarkable travel book.”
