The Land of Uz
G. Wyman Bury arrived in Aden in 1896 aged 22, a young man intent on a life of adventure. He quickly found his feet in the country and spent a year with the 'Abdali tribe, living among them and acquiring their language. This book -- which was originally published in 1911 -- records his experiences in the area where he worked both for the British government compiling intelligence reports and as a naturalist collecting for the British Museum. It also documents his travels, in particular his crossing of the sand seas from Nisad to Wadi Bayhan, the account of which vies with the best of Arabian travel writing.
