First published in 1878, this is the story of Frederick Burnaby's harrowing thousand-mile winter journey from Constantinople to eastern Turkey. War between Turkey and Russia threatened, and Burnaby was on a mission to discover whether the Turks could resist a potential thrust toward Constantinople by the Russian Empire. This entertaining account, a bestseller of its time, will appeal to armchair travelers, military history buffs, and anyone interested in the history of this fascinating and tumultuous region. British soldier and writer FREDERICK BURNABY (1842-1885) was a member of the Royal Horse Guards, and in 1882, he became the first balloonist to cross the English Channel alone. Three years later, he died from a spear wound sustained in battle in the Sudan. He also wrote A Ride to Khiva (1876).

Excerpt from On Horseback Through Asia Minor, Vol. 1 of 2 IT has been said that a man often writes his book first, his preface last. The author of this work is no exception to the general rule. These volumes contain an account of a journey on horseback through Asia Minor. I was five months in that country, and traversed a district extending over 2000 miles. My limited leave of absence prevented me from staying more than a few days at the important towns which lay on the route.

Burnaby (1842-85) was a Brirish Army intelligence officer whose adventurous spirit, pioneering achievements and swashbuckling courage earned him the affection of Victorian imperial idealists. As well as travelling on horseback across Europe and Central Asia, he mastered the art of ballooning, spoke a number of foreign languages fluently, stood for parliament twice and published several books. At six foot four and broad shouldered he was every inch the hero, and was admired and feted by the women of London's high society, whilst stories of his feats of derring-do won him widespread popularity amongst the masses. This account of his second trip across Asia Minor was first published in 1877. Volume 2 of 2, with two maps.
