AU Author. Like many Australians, Christine Hogan was fascinated, bemused and more than a little apprehensive of the Islamic world. But overcoming her trepidation, she decided the only way to gain any understanding of Islam - the religion, the culture and the people - was to see things first hand. Travelling through Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and the Gulf States, Christine embarked on a journey of discovery. While coping with stroppy camels, plagues of locusts, and getting lost in the Sahara, Christine also came to appreciate the beauty and complexity of the Middle East, and a kindness and hospitality unrivalled anywhere else in the world. She soon found her old assumptions making way for new insights.
