We Visit EgyptBook - 2013
Imagine living in a country covered almost entirely by an ocean of desert, much of it filled with sand dunes carved into artistic swirls and patterns by the desert winds, with some dunes rising 400 feet high. Most of Egypt is made up of the Sahara, the world's largest hot desert. If not for the Nile, Egypt would not be habitable and its civilization, one of the oldest on earth dating back more than 5,000 years, would have never developed. Best known for its ancient pyramids, mummies, and other archaeological treasures, modern Egypt is one of the most popular tourist destinations on earth. It is a modern country with strong cultural, social, and religious ties to its rich historic past. In this book you will travel through time, from the days of the pharaohs to present day, and meet the people, experience the places, and learn the history of this unique country. Book jacket.
