    Book details

These places are among the most beautiful on earth — the deserts of the Middle East, the Dead Sea coast, the ancient splendor of Luxor, the pyramids at Giza, and the eternal presence of Jerusalem itself — and their beauty all the more intense because of their rich historical and religious association. Breathtaking folio-sized reproductions of large-format photographs capture sacred vistas, images of awe, serenity, and ravishing beauty: the Oasis of Ain Umm-Ahmed, the view from the summit of Mount Sinai, a Bedouin orchard in the midst of a desert wadi, the dusty life of village and town, the Temple Mount, and the Wailing Wall.
Accompanying these photographs are Neil Folberg's delightful firsthand narratives recounting the humorous and harrowing adventures of a photographer in a politically troubled and naturally formidable land. While Folberg entreats only that you follow him into the landscape of his vision and derive pleasure wandering and wondering, the photographs of In a Desert Land — celebrations of beauty sacred and natural — are in fact moving prayers and persuasive arguments for sanity and peace in a reckless region and a volatile world.

Review Text

  • By Miguel Santos on 6 February 2009

    This book was one of my biggest disappointments. By the name of the book and the promises that it suggests, I was expecting a visual explosion of incredible photos. Unfortunately, all my expectations disappear. I cannot understand how Neil Folberg could forgot places like Gebel Fuga at Sinai and the White Desert in Farafra Oasis, Egypt. The incredible desert near Assuan was forgotten too. But the photos from Jordan desert were a much bigger disappointment. How could he not show images like the Siq at Petra and the astonishing forms and colors of Petra stones. Honestly I cannot understand why this book was so acclaimed.
