The author researched this book over his six year residence in Palestine. "Recent events in the Turkish Empire, the grant of a new Parliamentary Constitution, and the construction of the desert railway from Damascus to Medina and Mecca, are factors of supreme interest and importance in the wilderness life, which may well bring the Bedawin and thier country, the cradle of Islam, more prominently before the notice of the Christian world."
