Description

Emily Eden was born in 1797 into the charmed inner circle of the English upper class who conducted the country's political life. In 1836, this prominent member of Whig society joined her brother, George, in India where he was Governor-General. She stayed there for six years, during which time she embarked on a two-year-long tour of the country. With an unfailing eye for the eccentric and picturesque, Emily Eden describes in her letters the extraordinary experiences encountered in life on the road in early 19th-century India.
