Our Summer in the Vale of Kashmir (Classic Reprint)

Frederick Ward Denys

Excerpt from Our Summer in the Vale of Kashmir Denys for making this land of poetry and song, known chie?y through the enchanting verses of Lalla Rookh, so real and vital to us. The chapters are not only charming in their delightful portrayal of life in the Valley, but are also valuable for the painstaking presentation of details - the how and when and where of things that go to make up real living in a place. For this reason the book will doubtless prove to be of consider able assistance to tourists, and to those who may not yet have been so fortunate as to visit the Vale of Kashmir it will bring anticipations of enjoyment, and a longing desire to partake of the various phases of life to be experienced there in their fullness of beauty and interest. The well-chosen pictures and the artistic letter-press will also add to the readers pleasure and satisfaction. Owing to this intimate touch gained through his long so journ in the places he so picturesquely describes, Dr. Denys has produced a volume that is an important addition to works in lighter vein on countries too seldom visited. As the first American who has written of his experiences in the land of Kashmir, he will doubtless incite others of his countrymen to make the long journey and share with him in the varied charms of a region so aptly characterized by Dr. Arthur Neve.
