Bedouins

Post by LovelyLadyLux » Thu Apr 08, 2010 4:33 am

I have been reading an absolutely terrific book, "Bedouins by the Lake" written several of the professors of South Valley University of Aswan based upon a 20 year longitudinal study of Wadi Alaqi. Much of this is environmentally based but also talks of the role of Bedouin women, myths and assumptions of the Bedouins understanding of the desert. Quite factual but very interesting! I bought it on Amazon.com and it is a fairly new publication 2009. Not a huge book but I found it to be really worth the read.

Anybody else read this? Comments? Thoughts?
