Summary expansion
The author notes that "this book contains little history, geography or politics...Exploration and the harder travels, such as the Tullúl es Safá, the Haurán, the Lejá'a, the Aláh and other wilder parts of Syria have been described by Captain Burton and myself in 'Unexplored Syria;' but for all that, this book contains things women will like to know....I wish to convey an idea of the life which an Englishwoman may make for herself in the East."
