KIRKUS REVIEW

An account of an American oil company family's year in Arabia on the Persian Gulf is lively, but a far clearer picture of Americans in Arabia than of the Arabian way of life. Young Peggy, Robbie and Tubby Jackson join their parents at the company's settlement. With zest, the whole family learns the outward signs of Arabian customs, takes trips to nearby towns, glimpses a little of the peculiarities of Arabian daily and family life. Though we feel they have received no more from their experiences than we have from reading, it is a determinedly open minded book and not to be discounted as a small step in international understanding.
