First published in 1957, Destination Mecca was both an ambitious travel book and a work of ethnographic and cultural research.
Shah documents a wide range of fascinating journeys, from his quest for the gold mines of King Solomon on Sudan's Red Sea Coast, to encounters in desert caravanserais and sojourns with Mediterranean contraband smugglers, to his time as a personal guest of the elderly King Ibn Saud.
As enjoyable now as it was when first published, Destination Mecca acts as a beacon for hands on adventurers and those of a more sedate kind.

Enchanting real life tale. This guy did a lot in his life time and he is a historical treasure.
