Co-written with Arabian horse breeder Kellie Kolodziejczyk, Bachir Bserani supplies more than just a mere listing of Arabic words with meanings. He provides hand picked Arabic names that are easily pronounced by Roman language speakers. The Arabic names are written in both the masculine and feminine form with the English meaning, phonetic pronunciation and in Arabic calligraphy. This sets the book apart from standard Arabic dictionaries. The book is especially charming as the narrative and stories are written in the tradition of legendary Bedouin storytelling. Beginning with the origin of the Arabian horse breed, the philosophy behind the importance of giving authentic Arabic names, and the significance of the Arabian horse breed to the Bedouin tribes, the introduction draws the reader in and then carries them on a beautiful journey through the Arabian world of storytelling. It is filled with quotes and breathtaking, full-color photographs throughout.
