Download Gazelle Tracks books, "This short but cleverly crafted novel recounts the tale of Muhra, a young woman whose name means filly, born of the descendants of the Bedouin tribes who settled in Egypt's Delta Province of El Sharqiyya during the 18th and 19th centuries." "Past mingles with present and myth and folklore blend with reality, as the narrative voice records Muhra's quest as she seeks to discover the truth about her mother through the old family photographs that adorn the walls of her grandfather's house and other documents hidden away in cupboards and drawers." "At once both narrator and narrated, Muhra's tale of self discovery is set against the dwindling fortunes of her own people as they struggle to preserve their identity and culture amid the larger Egyptian community that encroaches upon them. At the same time her father's wanderings and ultimate demise reflect the waning star of the Arab tribes who once controlled large swathes of Egyptian territory and enjoyed the patronage of Kings and Princes." "Unwilling to give up despite premonitions of doom, Muhra's search leads her inexorably to the bitter truth about her mother's poignant life and tragic and untimely end."--Jacket.

Kismet In The Sand

by Shafik Benjamin, Kismet In The Sand Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Kismet In The Sand books, In Pre-Islamic Arabia, newborn female babies are buried alive in the desert, a custom practiced to avoid a possible future shame on the men in their families. Amir Shams stumbles upon an infant being pulled from the sand by a mysterious man and woman. Suspicious, Shams follows them and in a twist of events, finds himself the adoptive father of six girls. One is the abandoned daughter of the King of Arbad and a palace slave girl. This is the story of King Basheer and his love for his lost daughter, Kismet. The story begins with the violent raid of a small tribe by the monstrous Elkot raiders, leaving only one young girl, Absa, in its wake, mute from the tragedies she has witnessed. While walking through the desert Absa is rescued and taken in by Prince Shams and his wife Maya. Consequently, the couple begins to rescue baby girls from death, including Kismet, the daughter of King Basheer of Arbad, who lost his child to a palace scandal involving his beloved slave Jasmin. In the hands of Prince Shams and Maya, the girls grow up into strong empowered women who seize their destiny through skill and commitment. As they mature, they excel in combat and don beards as a disguise when ridding the desert of vicious gangs in their military force of over 400 warriors. Kasem (i.e. Kismet disguised during battle as the leader of the female army) isn't recognized when she and the girls go up against some city dwellers and the tribe of Beni Zedan. Kismet finds that the Chief of Beni Zedan is none other than her uncle who attempted the life of her half-brother, Amir Badr, the son of King Basheer, in order to avenge the death of both her and her mother, Jasmin. Follow the pages of Kismet In The Sand and discover the tragic love of King Basheer and his lost daughter, Kismet, and to journey with girls of Shams as they fight for their future, uncovering their identity in a tale of love, loss and destiny.

The Book Of The Lion

by Alfred E. Pease, The Book Of The Lion Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Book Of The Lion books, On Safari, B.E.A., 16th October 1909. To Sir Alfred E. Pease. Dear Sir Alfred,—I am very much pleased that you are to write a book about lion-hunting. Very, very few people have an experience which better justifies such a book. It is the king of all sports when carried on as you have carried it on, especially when you gallop the lion, and then kill him on foot as he charges or prepares to charge as a lion thus rounded up will generally do. I am peculiarly pleased to have you write the book, for it was under your guidance that I first tried lion-hunting. Sincerely yours, Theodore Roosevelt. This hunting classic contains the following chapters: Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt I. Lions and Lion Land II. About Courage III. Of the Courage of Lions IV. Of Dangerous Game V. Of Sport VI. The Lion VII. The Distribution of Lions VIII. Lion Cubs and Tame Lions IX. The Haunts of Lions X. The Lion’s Voice and the Lion’s Eye XI. Some Ways of Lions XII. In the Lion’s Jaw XIII. The Food and Drink of Lions XIV. Lion-Hunting XV. Hunting with Dogs and Hunting with Horses XVI. Night-Shooting XVII. Hints for the Beginner
