Sailor, travel writer, and photographer Alan Villiers had a lifelong fascination with traditional sailing techniques, which in 1938 led to him embarking on a remarkable journey by dhow down the East African coast and back to the Arabian Gulf. Joining the Kuwaiti crew of the 'Triumph of Righteousness' at Aden, he sailed to Mombasa, Zanzibar and the Rufiji Delta, and from there back to Oman and Bahrain, ending in Kuwait in 1939. In 'Sons of Sindbad' (first published in 1940), a classic of Arabian travel and of nautical writing and photography, he captures the tail-end of a centuries-old maritime way of life that has now vanished. THE PACKED WEIGHT OF THIS BOOK IS OVER 1KG, SO FOR UK FIRST CLASS AND INTERNATIONAL, ADDITIONAL POSTAGE COSTS WILL BE REQUIRED.
