Riassunto: Originally published by John Murray this is an account of Smith's time in Yemen, which started as a sabbatical year in 1982 and grew into fifteen years. Smith travelled the mountains, the desert and the sea and brings the country, the people and three millennia of history to life.
L'autore: Tim Mackintosh-Smith studied Classical Arabic at Oxford. At the age of 21, he headed east for the real Arabia. For the past 17 years, he has lived in the Yemeni capital, San'a - a place which has missed out on many of the more awful aspects of the post medieval period. His first book, Yemen: Travels in Dictionary Land, won the 1998 Thomas Cook/Daily Telegraph Travel Book Award and his next book Travels with a Tangerine was critically acclaimed.
