    eBook Arabian Sands ePUB í â formresponse.co.uk â arabian kindle, sands kindle, Arabian Sands EpubI like to browse through my books on a Sunday morning for some strange reason and came across this book that I read when I was working in Saudi Arabia and as I had also met the bedouin and taken tea with them I was interested to hear about Thesiger's travels in that country It's such an interesting study of the Saudi culture by a travel writer and also an explorer such as Thesiger and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the Middle EastIt's also good to see that this book is still so readily available I couldn't see it on Kindle but Penguin issued it in paperback as part of their Penguin classics series in 2008Classics like this are such a joy to read

For it is well written and extremely enjoyable a feast for the senses at every turn and a valuable look through the brown and gold flecked eyes of the Bedu into the desert and dunes and unforgiving landsape of the Empty uarte
