A War Correspondent’s Story
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Descended from New England sea captains, Louise Sheldon inherits the traits of a rover, which coupled with fluency in foreign languages became a springboard to a career as a foreign correspondent.
At LIFE magazine for twelve years, Louise covered the United Nations in New York as a reporter and writer, then went on to Paris, Bonn and London. After three years as an Associate Editor of Smithsonian, she moved to Morocco with her husband, Robert E. MacDonald, a member of the diplomatic corps. From Rabat she corresponded for United Press International (Paris), The Christian Science Monitor (Boston), The Middle East and 8 Days (both London magazines) and The International Herald Tribune (Paris).
The only American and the only woman reporting from Morocco, she covered the Saharan War, influencing the U.S. Congress to support this former ally. She continues to write on the arts and travel from numerous foreign countries, such as China, India, Peru, Lithuania and Slovakia.
Louise Sheldon graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a B.A. major in German and a minor in Spanish. Later she received an M.A. in French Literature from Northridge University.
