Sinopsis: In an age filled with romantic legends, Captain Frederick Burnaby literally towered above his countrymen. Strong enough to carry a pony under each arm, the dashing Burnaby enjoyed a well-deserved reputation for dare-devil equestrian deeds based on his illegal winter ride across Russia in 1875. "On Horseback Through Asia Minor" details how the brave Burnaby set off in the winter of 1876, convinced he could once again outwit the Czar's secret police. This time Burnaby determined to ride 2,000 miles across Asia Minor undetected. Ostensibly he was going to observe the Turks away from European influences. However Burnaby needed only the barest of excuses in order to undertake one of the nineteenth century's most courageous equestrian journeys. This book, which was published upon his return to England, details how Burnaby eluded Russian agents in Constantinople who had distributed his photo with orders to arrest him. Armed with a rifle, a small stock of medicines, and a single faithful servant, the equestrian traveler rode through a hotbed of intrigue and high adventure in wild inhospitable country, encountering Kurds, Circassians, Armenians, and Persian pashas. Through it all Burnaby succeeds in sharing with his readers all the dangers and delights of this timeless equestrian adventure travel classic!

Contraportada: In the savage winter of 1876, Captain Frederick Burnaby rode 1,000 miles eastwards from Constantinople to see for himself what the Russians were up to in this remote corner of the Great Game battlefield. With war between Turkey and Russia imminent, he wanted to discover, among other things, whether the Sultan's armies were capable of resisting a determined Tsarist thrust towards Constantinople. Frederick Gustav Burnaby was no ordinary officer. For a start he was reputed to be the strongest man in the British Army. Nor was he all brawn, being fluent in seven languages and possessing a vigorous and colourful prose style - as readers of this Great Game classic will discover. With his redoubtable manservant Radford, he spent five months riding across some of the cruellest winter landscape in the world before hastening home to write this best-seller.
