Summary
Archaeologist, spy, Arabist, linguist, author, poet, photographer, mountaineer, and nation builder, Gertrude Bell was born in 1868 into a world of privilege and plenty. Turning her back on that, she became the architect of the independent kingdom of Iraq and saw its first king safely onto the throne in 1921. A compelling portrait of a woman who transcended the restrictions of her class and age and, in so doing, created a remarkable and enduring legacy
