Traveller, Novelist and Egyptologist
A non fiction book by Joan Rees
This, the first biography of Amelia Edwards, sets out her work as the founder of the Egypt Exploration Society and writer of A Thousand Miles up the Nile in the context of her previous career as novelist and journalist. It traces her development from a multi-gifted child to an adventurous and unconventional woman and finally to her life as a dedicated and reclusive worker in the cause of exploring and safeguarding the antiquities of Egypt.
