From Cairo to Beirut: In the Footsteps of an 1839 Expedition Through the Holy Land (Paperback)
From Cairo to Beirut is an illustrated travel memoir of the author's journey to retrace a 200-year-old route of Scottish artist David Roberts. Shinde traveled a route through Cairo, Sinai, Petra, Palestine, Israel, and Lebanon -- ancient lands steeped in natural beauty, culture, architecture, and history -- to sketch and discover a region far removed from the newspaper headlines. Many times, Shinde stood within a 10-foot radius of where Roberts stood, and sketched what he sketched. The book includes 250 original sketches by the author and 25 lithographs from David Roberts.
