Synopsis: In his newest book, Egypt's leading archaeologist takes readers on a personal tour of the fascinating sites he has excavated over the last 33 years. His stirring descriptions of his life's work, accompanied by many previously unpublished photographs, take us from the famous monuments at Giza, where he has supervised the restoration of the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid and excavated the cemetery of the pyramid builders, to the Valley of the Golden Mummies in Bahariya Oasis, perhaps the most significant and spectacular discovery in recent years. Zahi Hawass, recently named to the top antiquities job in Egypt, spins true tales of tomb robbers, explains how he negotiates with local Egyptians whose homes may lie directly above important sites, and describes in detail the exhilarating experience of entering an ancient tomb for the first time after thousands of years. Dr. Hawass is a spellbinding storyteller; in his hands archaeology becomes the stuff of enthralling adventure, danger, and wonder.

About the Author: Zahi Hawass, chairman of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Cairo and explorer-in-residence at the National Geographic Society, is the most influential archaeologist in Egypt. He has taught at UCLA, Cairo University, and the American University in Cairo, and he lectures widely throughout the world. He has received many awards, and has published numerous scholarly articles and books as well as popular books for the general public.
