After two failed attempted expeditions to the eastern side of the Dead Sea, Henry Baker Tristram and his team finally managed to explore this “sealed” land with the protection from a prominent sheik of a local tribe. Endeavoring to examine the present state of the country referred to in the Old Testament Scriptures, Tristram’s party carefully examined the geology and archeology of that revered land for over a year. Their discoveries and travels are unique and inspiring, recounted with Tristram’s reflective and reverent observations.

Praise for the Print Edition
We have found this a fascinating volume. To begin, it is a capital book of travels. Fresh, lively, full of adventure among strange folk ina nearly unknown territory, it is written by an intelligent and accomplished gentleman, who describes well and writes good English. But, over and above this, it really adds a good deal to our knowledge of Scripture sites on the east of the Dead Sea.
