When I first picked up this book, I couldn’t put it down until I finished . Took me a couple of hours, and it was worth it. An impressive story of the life of one man from his humble origins as a Jew in Austria to his conversion and then his trek across Arabia by a dromedary (before the ‘Oil Boom’ that engulfed the region) to his eventual posting as a diplomat for Pakistan. The language and descriptive narrative will take you on a journey which you will never forget. I humbly suggest that you pick up a copy and read it for yourself.
