Children's LiteraturePride, honor, tradition . . . words used often when describing Saudi Arabia and its people. Unlike similar texts, this book has a unique voice and depth of knowledge that seems to come from someone who has lived in both Saudi Arabia and the United States. With an obvious appreciation for this ancient culture, the author introduces the Saudi Arabian country and people in a thorough and objective way. Geography, history, government, religion, art, and language are discussed. The appendixes alone make this is an excellent source for students and teachers. They include recipes, timeline, maps, glossary, bibliography and economic and cultural overviews. This book is part of the "Cultures of the World" series. 2003 (orig. 1993), Benchmark Books, Ages 13 to 17.
