Knopf Guide Egypt
An insightful and complete reference work that includes information about all aspects of Egypt, from ancient times to today. This book makes understanding Egypt's long, varied, and sometimes complicated history easier. I lead groups to Egypt each year and this is my number one recommendation for them. The illustrations of the temples and tombs are the easiest way to gain an understanding as to their original grandeuer and how they really looked back then. Highly recommended.
