The Sinai Bedouin: a photographic journey

The Sinai is a barren and inhospitable - but very diverse and stunningly beautiful - desert wilderness inhabited by nomadic Arab tribes, the Bedouin. Most of them are from the Arabian Peninsula originally, arriving in several waves before and after the Arab conquest. The Bedouin are now at a crossroad. This little ebook shows glimpses of their life and natural environment through 40 images.
