An account of the author’s travels through Syria and Palestine in the years 1895 and 1896. The author endeavours to depict, by means of pen and pencil, her impressions of Palestine, Syria and Lebanon. Due to the speed of the advancement of civilisation, it is the author’s intention to capture an image before the country is transformed, before the Bedouin is replaced by the European colonist, the camel by the railway, the tent by the suburban villa and the Khan by the Hotel.
