Beneath the Sands of Egypt
By

Rating
Ancient Egypt, with its spectacular temples and tombs, its history, gods, and legends, has enticed the human imagination for centuries. This fascination-and the irresistible drive to unearth the buried secrets of a lost civilization-have been the life work of archaeologist Donald P. Ryan. Beneath the Sands of Egypt is the gripping first-person account of a real-life "Indiana Jones" as he recalls a career spent delving into the remains of Egypt's past-including his headline-making rediscovery of a lost tomb in the Valley of the Kings containing the mummy of the famous female pharaoh Hatshepsut. Infused with the irrepressible curiosity and the incomparable wonder of discovery that have fueled Ryan's lifelong journey, Beneath the Sands of Egypt is the extraordinary story of a man who has always embraced adventure whenever-and wherever-he finds it.
