In this breathtaking photographic journey down the Nile river, renowned photographer Philip Plisson travels by air with bestselling author and Egyptologist Christian Jacq to create this celebration of a spectacular landscape. Plisson''s expert lens captures stunning icons of antiquity with the same grace and beauty as it presents the people of Egypt, subsisting as they have for centuries in communities along the Nile delta.
