BLURBS #"Eating the Flowers of Paradise is an account of extraordinary journeyings in a corner of the earth which remarkably enough has eluded investigation by explorers until this time. It abounds with fascinating and excting fresh material presented in a style comparable to the accepted classics of travel in Arabia and the Middle East."
-- Norman Lewis
