Beneath the harsh deserts of Saudi Arabia lie dark chambers and complex mazes filled with strange shapes and wondrous beauty. Ever-so-slowly formed over hundreds of thousands of years, these impressive cave formations could be damaged or destroyed in a matter of seconds by a careless visitor. The author and photographers of this book present these pictures to all those who dwell in this desert land, in the hope that they will join in an effort to protect and preserve a beautiful but hidden part of Saudi Arabia s parsimony.
