Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

National Geographic takes you to the ancient Land of the Pharaohs, where the shifting sands of time reveal one of history's great civilizations—and a key player in present-day Middle Eastern politics. Meet the ancient Egyptians who long ago pioneered irrigation agriculture, literacy, urban development, international trade, and the science of power politics. Visit modern Egypt and experience an Arabic-speaking, Islamic country with a rich history that also incorporates Christian, Greco-Roman and indigenous influences.

Learn how Egypt's unique position between continents made it a vital hub of international trade, and how this land, which mainly lies in Africa, is uniquely connected to Asia by its easternmost point, the Sinai Peninsula. Let National Geographic give you the ultimate guide to the country's ever-shifting desert terrain, which is divided in two by the mythical river Nile. Learn how the annual flood of this great river sustained a stable agricultural society in the past. Then travel along the Nile Valley and its delta and chart the towns and centers of habitation where most Egyptians now make their homes. An enlightening, timeless journey of discovery awaits all curious young readers.
