Synopsis: Book jacket/back: This is the magnificent account of the people of that exotic land, the Caucasus, their heroic leader Shamyl and their courageous thirty year fight to stem the tide of Russian Imperialism. It is also a history of 19th century Russian expansion that does much to explain the Russian character and the foreign policy of the modern-day Soviet Union. But above all it is the incredible story of one man, Shamyl, who personifies freedom fighting single-handed against autocracy and tyranny.

About the Author: Lesley Blanch, 1904-2007, was at heart a nomad. She travelled extensively and adventurously throughout her extraordinary life although her great passion was always for the Middle East and Russia. Married to the French diplomat and writer, Romain Gary, for 18 years, Blanch became arts features editor of Vogue in the thirties and turned to writing and journalism soon after. She was Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and the author of The Sabres of Paradise, Pierre Loti (both Tauris Parke Paperbacks) and the bestselling The Wilder Shores of Love among many others. At the time of her death she was writing her autobiography, the sequel to her acclaimed Journey Into the Mind's Eye. An inspiration to generations of writers, readers and travellers, Lesley Blanch was, in the words of Philip Mansel, ""not a school, a trend, or a fashion, but a true original.""
Philip Marsden is an award-winning novelist and writer. His books include The Crossing Place and The Spirit Wrestlers.
