Item description for Egypt Pocket Guide: The Oases (Egypt Pocket Guides) by Alberto Siliotti...
In 48 full-color pages, The Oases is the perfect accompaniment for any visitor to Egypt's six major oases in the Western Desert: Fayoum, Bahariya, Farafra, Dakhla, Kharga, and Siwa. Shaded by palm trees, these sizeable inhabited oases have drawn travelers from the outside world for centuries. With over 150 illustrations and maps, this concise guide describes in detail the highlights of these remote oases, including the mysterious White Desert outside Farafra, the Valley of the Golden Mummies in Bahariya, and the unique culture of Siwa--home of Egypt's only Berber-speaking people. The Oases serves as a fascinating introduction to these remote and beautiful regions.
