Up The Country : Letters from India Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago travellers series

Paperback / softback


Emily Eden was born in 1797 into the charmed inner circle of the English upper class who conducted the country's political life.

In 1836 this prominent member of Whig society joined her brother George in India where he was Governor-General.

She stayed there for six years, during which time she embarked on a two-year-long tour of the country.

With an unfailing eye for the eccentric and picturesque, Emily Eden describes in her delightful letters the extraordinary experiences encountered in life on the road in early eighteenth-century India.
