About this book

Presents the history, peoples, climate, creatures, sights and sounds of the largest and most austere desert on earth. Describes the legacies left by the desert's nations and peoples: stone circles older than Stonehenge; Roman aqueducts; remnants of Greek fields and vineyards; and the ruins of palaces and temples along the Royal Road, a once busy trading route for gold and salt.
