Victorian traveler Amelia Edwards was already a successful writer when she traveled a thousand miles up the Nile with an Egyptian crew and a few friends. The trip changed her life. A best seller of Victorian travel when published in 1877, A Thousand Miles Up the Nile has enthralled readers for more than a century and a quarter. With the original illustrations and footnotes, this is an enhanced version with a new introduction and additional, modern footnotes. Edwards' prodigious knowledge and research of ancient Egypt, Egyptian gods, pharaohs, and classical history places her travels in context for you. But it is her sensitive, romantic descriptions of Egyptian people and places that makes the book a delight to read over and over. Her understanding of music, poetry, and art all combine in A Thousand Miles. The book is a symphony of love for time and place. It begins quietly, swells to heights, then is relieved by minute details and humor. She educates the reader and then loses herself in rapturous descriptions of life on the Nile. On her return, she spent two years writing this book and was the driving force in the founding of the Egypt Exploration Fund. This superb account of Egypt in the 19th century will remain a classic for years to come.
