Detailed Product Description
London, Collins, 1977. 224 pp, color photos by Nik Wheeler, end paper maps, bibliography, index. Gold cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine.

Fascinating account of the life and lifestyle of the Iraqi Arabs living and working in the marshes of southern Iraq. Their idyllic existence came to an end when the marshes were drained at the behest of the World Health Organization  by Saddam Hussein, saving the lives of tens of thousands of children in Kenya and East Africa, by eliminating the breeding grounds of malarial mosquitos, but at the loss of a unique environment.
