MOUNTAINS OF THE PHARAOHS The Untold Story of the Civilization and the Powerful Royal Dynasty that Built the Pyramids of Egypt

by | Read by Simon Vance

History • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

The tombs, mummies, and gold of ancient Egypt have attracted foreign attention for five thousand years. Renowned Egyptian Egyptologist Zahi Hawass renders abundant detail and reasoned speculation into a tidy disquisition that will fascinate curious readers. Simon Vance's educated British accent and soft voice add a dusty patina to his descriptions of artifacts and religious beliefs stretching back to the brink of recorded history. He emulates a savvy tour guide as listeners vicariously enter the burial chambers of the Giza pyramids and stand between the paws of the Sphinx. Egyptian names, words, and places seem to roll off Vance's practiced tongue as though the author himself were speaking them. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
