Woodward’s letters about his travels, the places he worked and the people he met are fascinating reading, illuminating not only his own experiences as an American traveling in an area where few went at the time, but also shedding light for contemporary audiences on what the area looked like in the late nineteenth century, before it had been significantly altered by immigration, partition, and the ravages of war.
