KIRKUS REVIEW

Southern Arabia -- a part known as Yemen, ruled over by a King who dislikes foreigners and their ways, and who lays down laws as to their behaviour. Mountains, deserts, arid waste lands, bandits, savages, and the Arabian suspicion of strangers all combine to make his objections authentic. But the author is not daunted, and carves out for himself a troublous adventure -- when he entered the country by stealth, and after a terrific cross country trek, is caught and imprisoned and eventually sent out of the country. A travel book for those who like strange lands -- and escape reading.
