Synopsis: Way Down in Upper Egypt is a collection of colorful and intimate stories about the people, culture and customs in this region of Egypt, where life continues much as it has for the past hundred or so years. Why is this unique area called Upper Egypt when it's down in the southernmost part of the country? Why is marriage to a first cousin the most desirable and sought after, why don't automobile drivers turn on the lights after dark and what it means when a man puts his "tails in his teeth" Why must a man enter the house backwards where there'a a newborn baby? Meet colorful friends like Om Mustafa, whose arranged marriage took place at age eleven. What saved the author when a five foot crocodile came at her full speed with mouth wide open and how she escaped after making the carriage driver angry enough to want to kill her.
About the Author: Author biography is provided on Submission Information Form. Here is a duplicate: Jonna's first few trips to Egypt were study trips to support her passion for Egypt's ancient history. During each visit she spent more time living in the villages and getting to know the culture and customs of Upper Egypt. Over the ensuing 25 years she divided her time between her home in the USA and living along the Nile, forming close and lasting relationships with the villagers. Jonna is one of the founders of The Egyptian Study Society (ESS) at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, has served as a docent at three major Egyptian exhibits, is a founder and past editor of The Ostracon, official newsletter of the ESS, and when she isn't lecturing at schools or civic organizations, she organizes and leads trips to Egypt.
