Reviews

"A fine companion for a visit to the iconic Nubian temples." --Aidan Dodson
"Impressively informative and expertly organized and presented work of meticulous scholarship."--Midwest Book Review
"Abu Simbel and the Nubian Temples: A New Travelers Companion is an ideal, information-packed, gorgeously photographed, and easy-to-follow guide to Abu Simbel and other Nubian temples. Author Nigel Fletcher-Jones has a rare gift--to see the whole and the detail simultaneously, to provide us with the whole context, on the one hand, but also those brilliant little elements of a place easily missed without the expert's eye. His photographs are exactly what makes this [book] special. This book is a wonderful addition to the libraries of globe-trotters as well as explorers of the imagination."--Kara Cooney
