Mahoney weaves the tale of her quest to row the Nile with deft portraits of the people she meets, particularly Amr, the sailor who takes her underwing, and astute comments on contemporary Egypt. Her narrative invokes Herodotus, Gustave Flaubert, Florence Nightingale, Amelia Edwards and other famous travelers who have preceded her on the Nile.
