Nothing written about the Gulf region has been better reflected than what Al-Murr has in these pages. His stories talk about a place and a time that is truly unrique to this place and the surrounding area. A westerner would never truly undestand the meaning of the whole cultural background and so forth until he reads this book. Some of these stories are true, fabricated with a bit of fiction to entice the reader. All of them can happen or have happened. This is a great book recommended for all those that think that this region is made up of yahoos riding camels. It isn't, as the book point out, and that should be corrected in the minds of people from the west. It is made up a rich society with a rich culture. The way of thinking is different, but through it all it is true.
