The Marsh Arabs
The Marsh Arabs5 2 5 Forfatter: Wilfred Thesiger Oplæser: Laurence Kennedy
Thesiger documents the tribes’ conflicts, traditions, cuisine, relationships, justice systems and art, and reveals how they built their unique waterborne society, with its beautiful canoes (taradas) and stately guest houses (mudhifs) – it is a remarkable familiarity gained through Thesiger’s innate understanding of tribal ritual and etiquette, and the trust he earned through the use of a basic medical supply kit that he brought along with him.
Poetic and immersing, The Marsh Arabs brings alive the sights, sounds and smells of the marshes, and a culture that has now vanished forever.
