Item Description...
Jim, the American archeologist, arrives in Petra, a 2000 year old Nabatean city in the southern Jordanian desert. Shortly after his arrival, he receives vital support from Raji or Lizard Boy, a young peasant from a nearby village. Together, they pursue Jim's dream to find a special cave mentioned in the diary of an old French explorer, but natural disasters, traditions, and unusual friendships lead them to discover wealth far beyond a cave carved in colored sandstone.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An honest portrayal of arab culture  Oct 8, 2005
I've read some books surrounding Middle Eastern topics, but to me this is one of the select few that has the ring of authenticity. Arab culture is often a difficult one for writers to convey accurately, as it is an equal mixture of eastern exoticism and western functionality. Lean too heavily on one element or the other, and the picture becomes distorted. In fact, much of the success of this book comes in the contrast and comparison of Arab culture, as embodied in the boy Raji, to the western influence, as represented by the archeologist Jim. Neither culture is glorified nor condemned by the author, but each is treated respectfully and compassionately, despite the many differences between the two. It is an enjoyable and well constructed story, that is written in a wonderful, easy flowing style. It's clear that the author knows quite a bit about the history and artifacts of Petra and this information brings added richness to the tale, as do a good number of supporting characters. All in all, it's a great read and a memorable story that readers across the generations can enjoy.
"Colored Sand", a Traveler's Review  Nov 11, 2003
I recommend this book to the armchair traveler,or to travelers who've visited or plan to visit Petra. I was introduced to Nadia Hazbour Reimer's novel, "Colored Sand", shortly after returning from a journey that included an all-too-brief visit to Petra. Reading Reimer's book was like revisiting Petra. The plot and main characters -- a local village boy and an aging American archaeologist -- are effectively used to acquaint the reader with Petra and its history, while providing a view of American and other foreign visitors through the eyes of a rural village boy. The book is informative with a good dose of humor. Reimer, born and raised in Jordon, knows her subject well, thanks to her father's lifelong interest in archaeology, and her own experience on several archaeological digs. The author's second novel, "Under the Roman Pillar", takes the reader to another of Jordan's spectacular historic sites, the ancient Roman ruins of Jerash -- an equally worthwhile read.
Great Novels  Feb 26, 2003
Both Nadia's novels, "Colored Sand" and "Under the Roman Pillar" are at the top of the reading lists of many avid readers and teachers of world literature. These stories portray, through true, positive images cultures, unknown to most of the world. The events caputure the readers and engage them in fascinating adventures.
Quality Novels  Feb 26, 2003
This novel appeals to readers of all ages. The events of this fascinating story and its setting make it difficult to set the book down. I have read both of Nadia's books, "Colored Sand" and "Under the Roman Pillar", and I find them both well worth reading. I strongly recommend them, especially to teachers of world literature.
