KIRKUS REVIEW

An account of South Arabian archaeological treasure hunting is a fine introduction to the occupation, containing the joys and dangers of the life. Working at the ancient city of Beihan, the expedition enjoyed Arab friendships as it unearthed valuable objects; but at Yemen, searching for clues in Sheba's history there were the local tensions and resentments that led to near violence. A dedicated account tells the aims of the scientist and his relation to the place where he must study.
