Format: Paperback
A very interesting travelogue of Oman in the mid 1950's. With oil wealth flooding the Middle East and British power in the region receding equally quickly changes and pressures are massing on the borders of this largely unknown and forgotten piece of Southern Arabia.

The book details the authors travel on a historic trip undertaken by the Sultan of Oman and Muscat, from Muscat to Oman overland through the Mountains and Deserts by truck, a feat never undertaken previously. The trip is undertaken by the Sultan for strategic reasons as he needs to display his authority and unite the people of his entire kingdom to thwart the influence of his wealthy neighbour Saudi Arabia.

The author writes beautifully about the stunning landscapes of the interior of Oman. The descriptions of the settlements and different tribal groups of the interior are also sharp and insightful. The prevailing geo-political themes are also accurately described and provide good context,

A good book travel book well worth reading.
