An account of the Bedawin of the desert, who occupy a unique position in the history of the human race. The author has endeavoured to depict the salient features of Bedouin life in its association with the Holy Land.
The author who resided in Jerusalem for many years predicts that the events in the Turkish Empire of a new Parliamentary Constitution, and the construction of the desert railway from Damascus to Medina and Mecca are of great significance to the wilderness life, which may bring the Bedouin and their country more prominently before the notice of the European powers.
