Arabia: A Journey Through The Heart of the Middle East by Levison Wood

Shortlisted for the 2019 Edward Stanford Award


'[A] rollicking Boys' Own adventure' - Spectator

'This heart-stopping personal account of historic Arabia today.' - Compass Magazine

Following in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia and Wilfred Thesiger, Arabia is an insight into Levison Wood's most complex and daring expedition yet: an epic and unprecedented 5000-mile journey through 13 countries, circumnavigating the Arabian Peninsula.

Honest, reflective and poignant, Arabia is a historical, religious and spiritual journey, through some of the harshest and most beautiful environments on Earth. Exploring the Middle East through the lives, hearts and hopes of its people, Levison Wood challenges the perceptions of an often misunderstood part of the world, seeing how the region has changed and examining the stories we don't often hear about in the media.
