A fascinating living geography book from 1879 that will touch your mind, your imagination, and your heart.
When Mary went to Egypt to start a school for girls, she never thought she would stay so long. Her letters paint a fascinating picture of life in Egypt in 1879. And her insight into customs, culture, and climate ring true even today. Plus, many Bible quotations and allusions are woven throughout the letters, along with illustrations of how life in Egypt reminded Mary of those passages.
