About this Item

White pictorial wraps. Now in protective wrap. From the Preface: "Up to the middle of this century [20th], the effort of survival in the Gulf had created characters with tremendous resistance to adversity, in all its facets, and with great pride in their origins and traditions. The extent of their hospitality, their impeccable manners and their code of conduct, given the unrelenting austerity of their lives at that time were incredible. Nevertheless, they were human, with very human feelings and failings. One of the great strengths of Mohammad Al Murr's tales is that they allow the reader to see all sides of the characters of those people, and the characters of their descendants in a totally modern environment.".
