Overview

Julia Johnsons' latest collaboration with the watercolourist Susan Keeble is a captivating story of a Bedouin boy Hamad and his Saluki hound Sougha ("the gifted one"). It recounts their mutual devotion and the adventures they share on Hamad's journey to adulthood. Julia Johnson has done much to keep alive the stories of the Bedouin and their way of life and to bring them to a younger readership in Arabia and throughout the world. Saluki, Hound of the Bedouin, is, as always, thoroughly researched, and accurately and sensitively illustrated by Susan Keeble. Children between the ages of 6 and 11 will delight in this tale of life in the desert - a life of hunting and herding, of hardship and its rewards, of the hazards of death and of the bond between man and beast. All lovers of the Saluki will take pleasure in this tribute to a noble breed, offered here to a new generation.
