'Mrs. Tyacke was a dapper little woman of five-foot-one whose favourite pastime was stalking game in the uplands and valleys of Kashmir, Albania, or, in this case, the foothills of the western Himalayas where she eventually settled with her husband Richard Humphrey . [although no one was quite sure if the pair were ever actually married' (Robinson, Wayward Women, p. 76). Although her bag in her first year was large, including 6 black bears and 8 red ones, sundry fowl and deer, it could ' have been considerabll increased had we cared to go in for slaughter.' A scarce book.
