This project consists of ten digitized English language travel accounts by persons who journeyed through Muslim regions of the Russian Empire. The earliest of these accounts is that of American George Ditson who traveled through the Caucasus in 1847 and the latest of the selected texts is that of Stephen Graham who traveled through Russian Central Asia on the eve of World War I. Also included is the turn of the century account of British traveler Annette M.B. Meakin about her journey to Turkestan.
As primary sources accessible to an English speaking audience and because of their rich content and unique viewpoints, travel accounts such as these benefit all research levels. These accounts present a wealth of cultural, ethnographic and geographic information regarding the Muslim regions of the Russian empire in the period from the middle of the 19th Century through the beginning of the 20th Century.
