Renowned author and editor Charles Warner penned this fascinating memoir about his travels through Egypt in 1874. Conveying his feelings of wonder in lucid and vivid writing, Warner takes the reader on a journey through Egypt’s many mysterious places—from the Pyramids, to the bazaars of Cairo, to various mosques and tombs, to the ruins of Thebes, and finally, down the Nile River. Paralleling the path of the Israelites exodus from Egypt, Warner’s journey down the river is full of surprises and extraordinary occurrences, including an unforgettable Christmas celebration in the heart of the Nile.

Praise for the Print Edition
Mr. Warner's delicate humor, the finest aroma of wit, appears to excellent advantage in his sketches of Eastern travel. He sees things with American eyes, and conveys to the reader the vivid impressions which come from a comparison of Egyptian life with our own.
—American Church Review
It is evidently not possible for Mr. Warner to write a dull book.
—North American Review
Charles Dudler Warner has been classed among our humorists and his philosophy is indeed permeated by a vein of delicious humor absolutely sui generis, which sparkles and coruscates, as it were, on the surface of all his writings; but under this smiling surface it is never to be forgotten that there lie the deepest and most earnest feelings and convictions. Mr. Warner is a thinker and one whose thoughts are mainly occupied with subjects that make for the elevation and well being of his fellows.
