    Gertrude,ah , a woman of substance

    If you are interested in the early years of Arabia, this book should be in your library! Ms. Bell was the only woman included in important decisions regarding the Arabian land,as well as the people. Most of us are familiar with T.E. Lawrence,however,most people are not familiar with Gertrude!Please, do yourself a favor, read and enjoy this book!
