$ 15.00 $ 15.95

Compiled by Tim Barger, this collection of letters between his father and his mother provide a glimpse of Arabia before there was oil. The elder Barger worked as a junior geologist for Standard Oil in Arabia, and retired 32 years later as President and CEO of Aramco. These letters paint a fascinating portrait of life in mid-century Arabia; from desert nomads to King Abdul Aziz bin Saud; and of a way of life now almost completely obliterated.
