While at times the delivery was slightly dry, this is nevertheless an interesting account of a series of events that may have gone on to contribute to shaping American history.

Having an interest in the way of life and history of the peoples of the region, surviving as they do in a seemingly barren landscape, the details of day to day life at this time were fascinating.

Particularly enjoyable was the research in the appendices, giving details of how the various families and their descendants fared in the ensuing events.

Format: Hardcover
The author reveals the quality of his early school education by successfully focusing on the historical details in this absorbing tale. His writing style is reminiscent of Stanley Bull at his best with a particular emphasis on the role of camels in this gripping yet true story of a desert adventure. The realisation that this epic is factually based made it even more interesting. Maislish has scored a stylish winning goal with his first book and he is set to become the Thierry Henry of historical novels.

This book, although well written, is like walking through treacle. The author takes up too much time with irrelevant information about characters and the main characters doings

A fascinating mix of history and ethics; I am glad I found this book. Having read this, I now also want to read Captain James Riley's original narrative.
