A very amusing, rather tongue-in-cheek look at ancient Egypt through the eyes of a traveler in the reign of Ramesses II. Full of maps and illustrations and a very funny phrase selection. Hey Doctor! Is that purge really necessary?
This would make a grand gift for that teenager or older child who is mad about Egypt. Not very long, and easily gotten through in an evening. Overall, four stars.
