Customer Review

on 31 May 2013
Thoroughly enjoyed reading Maxwell's account of his travels amongst the marsh Arabs of Southern Iraq. Maxwell's description of the physical terrain, and the animals and people who inhabit it, is simply spell-binding. Very sad to think that it has all been destroyed by the likes of Saddam Hussein. Would have been truly wonderful to have enjoyed the experience that Gavin Maxwell had there at the time. As a bonus Maxwell got to travel through the marshes with the doyen of explorers Wilfred Thesiger. They formed an effective if contrasting combination and their travelling relationship provides an interesting sub-text to the overall journey. If you get the chance to read this book take it..
