About the Book
The Arabian Peninsula, and Jordan, through the eyes of Peter Doré, an expatriate from Australia who has lived and worked in the Middle East over 10 years.
Peter has travelled extensively in the region, including participation on extensive expeditions through the Ar Rub Al Khali - the Empty Quarter. In this inhospitable land there exists the most breathtaking desert scenery shown for you in this book. The book also shows glimpses of Petra, the ancient city often called the Rose Red City. You can see why in these pages.
Peter has worked and travelled around the world for over 10 years and has spent some time in the Middle East working both in the UAE and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. During this time Peter has travelled in major expeditions across the Saudi Arabian desert known as the Empty Quarter. His job was to take photos, as well as assist with digging vehicles from sandy bogs, cooking food, navigation, fixing cars, repairing tyres, and whatever else was needed to be done. The Empty Quarter is certainly not empty as the pictures show. It is full of wondrous sites that are shared in Peter's pictures. Peter has holidayed and travelled through the deserts and mountains of Oman, Abu Dhabi, Jordan and Saudi Arabia and these sights are showcased in his book. Share this world with Peter as you look through the pages.
