This handy book takes you through the A to Z of Saudi Arabia, from the abaya to Zabaydah road, encompassing everything from dust devils to Makkah and marriage. Did you know for example, that Eve is said to be buried in Jeddah? Do you have any idea how a camel stores its water? With over 500 entries, enhanced with colour photos throughout, this is an invaluable reference for anyone learning about the kingdom, its traditions, customs and people.
