I picked up this book since everything that has happened since 9/11 has put the Middle East and the muslim world constantly in the news media. Would you like to learn more about the Middle East back in the 1930's when England was still in power there----the time of Lawrence of Arabia?
How did Saudi Arabia's rulers and Yemen's rulers come into power against the British colonists?
Well, pick up this book that will hold your attention as you wonder all around the Red Sea hunting for clues of what happened to the Britishman, Ivor Willoughby. You will find yourself visiting places you hear constantly in the news today: Arabia, Riyadh, Jeddah, and Yemen. You will discover interesting facts about arabian culture, the deserts, the fortifications along the Red Sea, the camel caravans and the practice of importing slaves from Africa.
