In Search of King Solomon's Mines
by Tahir Shah
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 240 PAGES
A man with a passion for tracking down oddball legends and impossible stories, Shah tackles in this rollicking account Ethiopia and the Queen of Sheba. Shah's quest, full of intriguing incident, takes him to the ancient castles of Gondar, rock churches of Lalibela, and the mountain of Tullu Wallel, where legend says the devil keeps watch. And, yes, he finds gold. An Afghani raised in England (where he still lives), Shah has written widely on the Middle East, Central Asia, Africa, and South America.
