Product Description

Product Description

The Sultanate of Oman is a land of oases,deserts, rolling sands, shifting dunes and mountains upon which ancient cities have been carved from stone. A land that boasts the Queen of Sheba, Sindbad the Sailor and The Lost City of Ubar buried for millennia under the Arabian Sands. A country that was heralded for its wealth in frankincense and it is from here that ancient frankincense caravans began carrying their precious cargoes to the classical world. Oman is a country where the Bedouin still wander the deserts as they have since time immemorial. A mystical land where eagles soar over the mountain that is home ot the prophet Job, a prophet in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

In the mountains nearby live an ancient people whose language predates Aramaic. The age of the language remains a mystery. It is a spoken language with no written form. In these mountains one finds caves that are decorated with prehistoric art. Mines and distinctive cone like tombs dating from the Bronze age feature all over the country. It is a land that has tales of wizardry, magic, jinns and exorcisms. Embark on a magical and mystical Arabian Odyssey with one man and his traveller's tales through this land that time has all but forgot.

I highly recommend this book. Having visited Oman 3 times, I can relate to the author. There is something in Oman that just draws you in and won't let go. The author absolutely captured that spirit. Do yourself a favour and read this book.

At times focused too much on the mystical aspects of the authors journey. But the author does introduce the reader to some very interesting places.
