Unusual storry of an European among the Arabs,
This review is from: The Road to Mecca (Paperback)
This is a GREAT story of a traveller. It will take you through Arabia and North Africa in the thirties. Not only will you cover great distances through the desert on camel's back, come very close to King Abd al Aziz Ibn Saud and live many adventures but you will also accompany Muhammad Assad (Austrian Jew Leopold Weiss by birth name) on a spiritual journey.
To learn about the Arabs, Islam, the Middle-East with extreme pleasure.
