The Nile’s Embrace


The Nile’s Embrace

By Montserrat Del Amo

SKU: ISBN: 9966-882-10-3 Category:


The Nile’s Embrace is an extraordinary adventure story. Extraordinary because for two young boys to set off on a one thousand kilometre canoe trip down the Nile is not exactly like taking a ride around the estate….But that’s not all. Besides the action we appreciate the considerations made which help us to grasp the theme of the novel. We enjoy the somewhat subtle judgements made, the analysis of actual situations very different from our own, etc.

The author invites us to read, live an incomparable human adventure!
