Saluki: Hound of the Bedouin by Julia Johnson and Susan Keeble
Julia Johnson's latest collaboration with watercolorist Susan Keeble is a captivating story of a Bedouin boy named Hamad and his Saluki hound Sougha ("the gifted one"). It recounts their mutual devotion and the adventures they share on Hamad's journey to adulthood. Children between the ages of 6 and 11 will delight in this tale of life in the desert--hunting and herding, hardship and its rewards, and the bond between man and beast. All lovers of the Saluki will take pleasure in this tribute to a noble breed, offered here to a new generation.
