INTRODUCED BY WILLIAM ATKINS, author of The Immeasurable World I am merely an eccentric, a dreamer who wishes to live far from the civilized world, as a free nomad. Isabelle Eberhardt s writing chronicles, in passionate prose, her travels in French colonial North Africa at the turn of the 20th century. Often dressed in male clothing and assuming a man s name, she worked as a war correspondent, married a Muslim non-commissioned officer, converted to Islam and survived an assassination attempt, all before dying in a flash flood at the age of 27. Desert Soul brings together her Wanderings and The Daily Journals , detailing the ecstatic highs and the depressive lows of her short but unique and extraordinary life.
