Oriental Odyssey IV
The living and the those close to death, believing in the magic of their deity, will bury their dead and accompany those who stand at death`s door to those mythical places. They carry their dead, they ferry them in coffins or wrapped in blankets, upon donkey, horse or camel to those mythical places. These convoys of the dead and dying pilgrims, this `Caravan of the Dead` moves on, hoping to join their prophets in the garden of their Deity. Such then is the title subject of this book. In these pages you will find the reason for the trail, the reason for the fervent belief system and the reason for the psyche of the people that populate the region that is known today as Arabia, Iraq and Iran.
