Reviews - What do customers think about The Gateway to the Sahara?

Tripoli Libya Sahara 1895-1910  Jul 17, 2005
1904 first edition; 1914 second edition revised; hardback publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, NYC, w/illustrations. Contents: 1-Tripoli in Barbary: customs, the Arbar-Arsat, beggars, Ophthalmia, races, stealing camels, the 'evil eye'. 2-Town scenes and incidents: wedding procession, Arab character, Islamism, Turkish taxation and tithes. 3-Outside the Walls: yoke of taxation, ancient customs, crops, oasis, irrigation, 4-Salam, a Hausa slave: slave rights, slavery, escape & recapture & sale. 5-the Masked Tuagegs: confederation, territory, brigandage, reprisals, massacre, salves, costumes, their mask. 6-discovery of the U.S. frigate Philadelphia; old guns, harbor explored, discovery of a vessel's ribs below water, diving. 7-the Greek sponge divers: casualties, quicksands, reefs, exports, some unpleasant facts, sharks, sponges. 8-the Esparto pickers: grass or halfa, regions, wages, gathering, dangers, its use, an accident, black workers, thieving stevedores. 9-the Caravan trade: the Sahara area, trade routes, Ghadames, Suan, outfitting, wells, baracan. 10-Desert incidents: Dedawi, manner of life, women, social system, desert thieves, slaves, Senusi. 11-Camel Trails: kinds of camels, breeds, feeding, riding, mehari, nakat, environment, songs, mortality. 12-A night's ride with Arab bandits: clothes, food, Bedawi, Khoms, men mutiny, Kussabat, apprehensions, thieves, ambush. 13-a Desert Episode: desert hostelry, a Turkish officer, Lokanda. 14-the Desert: area, character, races, water, wells, sandstorms. 15-Libia Italiana: Tripoli, Tiple Alliance, Berlin Treaty, Italian aggression, spies, military view-points, desert warfare, secret Senousi, treaty terms. 16-the price of a colony: Italy's real-estate venture, its cost, toll in men, hard times, progress of Italian occupation, native troops, schools for Arabs, the new Tripoli. Wow! A first-hand account of traveling through the Tripoli (Libya) desert region during 1890-1910. The 1914 edition's paper is not great quality, some colored pictures of various scenes and the photographs are not very detailed, but has a nice map. Not a scholarly work, but in more of a jovial romp into the Sahara, sort of a "What I and Timothy did today while riding about in the sand dunes, seeing the poor folk and being chased by muraders back to town."
