Descripción de editorial
This story combines adventure, history, travel, intrigue and romance into a fun 'wonder what will happen next' reading experience. A 26-year old Stanford graduate geologist and his survey team travel from Tripoli, Libya over the vast Sahara to Alexandria, Egypt during the Arab holy month of Ramadan. Once there, the team helps a wealthy Egyptian born Sicilian family smuggle dollars and gold away from the nationalistic regime of a rising dictator. The reader will experience Libya's oil boom and a very brief discussion of exploration techniques used at the time, a descriptive walk through an Arab Medina, a description of the world's largest desert, a belly dance through the eyes of the young bachelor, flights over the Mediterranean and once in Sicily some complications, a torrid love affair, and the consequences of life changing decisions, and that is only a portion. The author has developed each main character into a real and interesting individual.
A portion of this story is based on the author's personal experiences in Libya in the early 1960s.
