Publisher's Description

An easy, engaging, and often funny introduction to Arab culture—its richness, humanity, and challenges—through the experiences of an English family
 
The Middle East features regularly on our television screens, in ways that often lead to a simplistic and stereotyped view of the land and the people that live there. Having moved to the Middle East, Chris Naylor and his wife set up a pioneering branch of the environmental agency A Rocha in Lebanon. Over the years they found their prejudices and assumptions utterly overthrown. Their story is an insightful and informed introduction to Arab culture through the experience of an English family. Engaging and often funny, it explores themes of cross-cultural communication and environmental vision.

Author Bio

Chris Naylor is executive director of the environmental agency A Rocha.

"The environmental condition of the Middle East is easily forgotten amidst the maelstrom of politics and conflict. This rich and inspiring account is thoughtful, wise, and compelling reading." -Dominic Couzens, bestselling natural history writer and author of Secret Lives of Garden Birds
