Enigmatic and beautiful, Egypt's ancient civilization and myth-inspiring Nile have long attracted travelers. In its expanded and up-dated second edition, Egypt: Gift of the Nile is a thorough guidebook which makes all of Egypt's mysteries accessible. From exciting Cairo to the quiet, unspoiled Biblical Sinai, Egypt:offers historical background and contemporary cultural insights that enrich a trip to Egypt. Robert Morkot shares the basics of Egyptian food, etiquette and customs, shopping and sports. He illuminates chapters on specific regions with more than 50 full-color photographs that highlight archeological wonders like Elephantine Island of Aswan. Detailed Maps, hotel and airline information, and an introduction to the hieroglyphic alphabet make this book an essential guide to a fascinating country. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description 
  
Ancient even to the ancients, Egypt was a great nation a thousand years before the Minoan civilization was established in Crete. It was viewed by the Greeks and Romans of 2,000 years ago with the same awe with which we view ancient Rome and Greece today. A visit to Egypt is like a journey back in time, but the country offers much more than just its history. Made up almost entirely of desert, Egypt owes its past, present and future to a single body of water, the river Nile. This well-researched guide leads the reader on a journey through the ages from the tombs of the Pharoahs to the modern engineering feats of the Suez Canal and the mighty Aswan Dam. An excellent introduction to the most endlessly fascinating civilization in the world. * A guide to the fascination of one of the most ancient civilzations * Practical and informative on the best of Egypt's treasures * Beautifully illustrated by an internationally renowned photographer * Carefully chosen literary excerpts add to the historical perspective
