A iciness in Arabia recounts her 1937-8 excursion in what's now Yemen, a trip which helped safe her popularity not just as an exceptional trip author, but in addition as a major geographer, historian, and archaeologist. There, within the land whose "nakedness is clothed in shreds of departed splendor," she and partners spent a iciness looking for an old South Arabian city.

Offering infrequent glimpses of existence at the back of the veil-the subtleties of commercial and social behavior, the frilly good looks rituals of the ladies, and the sour animosities among rival tribes, Freya Stark conveys the "perpetual appeal of Arabia ... that the traveller unearths his personal point there easily as a human being."
