Reviews - What do customers think about The Desert Rat?
Interesting and touching Jul 30, 2008
I worked with Aileen Coleman in Jordan for a few years, so I was interested in reading this book. I read it in a couple of evenings and wish there had been more. I enjoyed the many stories and learned quite a few things about Aileen that I didn't know. This is a fascinating book about a woman whose life is dedicated to serving the Beduin community in the Middle East.
