A Ride to Khiva - Fred Burnaby
A Ride to Khiva by Fred Burnaby recounts the author's strictly unofficial mission to investigate the latest secret Russian moves in the Great Game. His goal was the mysterious caravan city of Khiva, his aim to discover whether this remote and dangerous oasis was about to be used as a springboard for an invasion of India. This copy is a facsimile reprint of the 1876 edition. Includes a map in a rear pocket.
