Theodore BENT (1852 - 1897) and Mabel BENT (c.1847 - 1929)

Southern Arabia recounts a threatening four-month journey into North Eastern Ethiopia by the Bents. These brave travelers were the first to travel without disguise in a region where Westerners had formerly been fortunate to escape with their lives. (Summary by Woolly Bee)
