Overview

Memoirs of a Saudi Pilot: In the Beautiful State of Alabama (USA) is an exciting and revealing book about the wonders and culture shock experienced by a traditional, conservative Islamic Arab coming to the United States for the first time, creating some unforgettable memories.

The book deals with the author’s initial exposure to a foreign, advanced Western country, the new experiences he faces, the culture shock, and sharing his religious teachings with his American hosts.

He writes, “At the end, it was wonderful experience, coming from a traditional and conservative Arab and Islamic culture, and having the great opportunity to study and live in the West. Moreover, this was further highlighted during the Second Gulf War, Desert Shield, Desert Storm.”

The main characters are his colleagues in military training from 1983 to 2011. “I was deeply motivated by wonderful American colleagues in training who were always there to help, and yet were willing to share in my culture and religion, much as I was trying to understand theirs.”
