This captivating tale recounts the mutual devotion of the young Bedouin boy Hamad and his Saluki hound, as the former journeys to adulthood. Julia Johnson has done much to keep alive the stories of the Bedouin and their way of life and to bring them to a younger readership in Arabia and throughout the world.
