Synopsis:
The Sinai peninsula -- a fabled triangle of land squeezed between Africa and Asia -- harbors a rich deposit of cultural history. For many centuries, Sinai has served as a pivotal transit station, a lively route of caravans, armies, missionaries, and pilgrimages, and a military shield for Egypt. Sinai has served as the crossroads of the world's three major religions. The work of a distinguished group of journalists and scholars, with over 60 stunning color photographs, Sinai provides a comprehensive picture of the region: its breathtaking geography, its remarkable secular and religious history, and the culture and customs of its Bedouin peoples.
