Angkor the Magnificent - Wonder City of Ancient Cambodia


Angkor the Magnificent - Wonder City of Ancient Cambodia Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tale of it is incredible; the wonder which is Angkor is unmatched in Asia. So begins Helen Churchill Candee's classic tale of Asian adventure. Today, readers can again experience the mystery of Cambodia's vast jungle temples through her eyes. Although Helen Candee is best known for surviving the sinking of the RMS Titanic, she walked with kings, presidents, the wealthy and the powerful. entertaining, educating and influencing them. This independent woman championed feminine equality and fought tirelessly for woman's rights. And, as a single woman, she traveled the Far East with a keen eye for detail, an inquisitive mind, and a sensitivity for local culture. Helen Candee's travelogue remains one of the most evocative English language accounts of the ancient Khmer capital. This expanded hardcover edition marks the first reissue of her complete 1924 work with more than 100 antique illustrations, an index and bibliography. For the first time in print, this edition also features an original biography of Helen Candee by historian Randy Bryan Bigham, and a reprint of Candee's original account of the Titanic disaster itself.
