Here in superb color photographs is the visual experience of a journey along the Nile. Egypt's monuments and treasures -- the pyramids of Giza and Saqqara and the temples and tombs of Thebes -- are visited, as are the less well-known sites and cities of the Delta, the Faiyum, Sinai, and Nubia. The accompanying text gives an overview of five thousand years of Egyptian history from the first pharaohs to the modern Arab republic.

Each location is illustrated by a site plan and photographs not only of the principal structures but also of objects from the site, allowing these extraordinary works of art to be appreciated in their original setting. Specially commissioned cross-sectional diagrams, a double fold-out map of the Nile's course, and an illustrated glossary complete this panoramic study of Egyptian civilization.
