I really enjoyed this book!

Highly recommended if you are interested in past Arabic life and culture which is now lost to money, power and oil. The author had some wonderfully authentic experiences that are lost to this world and time.
Read " City of Salt" after reading this book!

The Black Tents of Arabia, by Carl Reinhard Raswan.No contemporary Arabian horse fancier had more first-hand involvement with the Bedouins and high-adventures with desertbred horses and few individuals in history have generated more printed words about them. Blacks Tents is a chronicle of his periodic escapades, (which spanned a total of twenty-six years) migrating, hunting, raiding, feasting, and starving amidst the Ruala tribe. Certainly, no modern writer better captured the essence of the vanishing nomadic Arab culture in such nostalgic and wistful terms. Among the many interesting segments found in the book is an account of the only know meteorite shower to have caused human casualties. First published in 1935, at least four reprints have greatly enhanced the folklore of the breed. Reviewed by Andrew K. Steen, Author and Historian of the Arabian Horse and the Exploration of Arabia

This is an expanded edition of the book first published in 1935, in which the author re-counts his desert experiences in pursuit of knowledge of the Arabian horse. He later used what he learned to become a principal agent in building up the breed in the United States and Europe in the 20th century. Traveling in the Arabian Peninsula shortly before the founding of Saudi Arabia in 1932, Raswan was renowned among the tribes for his deep respect of Bedouin ways, especially horsemanship and horse breed-ing. Born in Dresden in 1893, he emigrated to the United States in 1921, where he as-sisted in the historic Davenport importation and with the establishment of the country's earliest Arabian stud farms. This edition contains 100 pages of photographs. DD

interestingly this version did not contain portions of an earlier edition, which was very disappointing, as I had particularly purchased it for the contents I hoped it would contain! not sure how to overcome this, probably unable to. definitely a shame, however the rest of the book was as remembered and a good read.

I like it. It's a quirky book, written long ago, but it gives a lot of insight into the Arabian horse and the Bedouins. It's not really a book that would have a large following, but for those interested in the history of Arabians, and understand the significance of Carl Raswan, it's a good read.

Good snap shot of a culture after the turn of the century.
Some fiction writers are dying for the structure that will set them apart from the others. Their books are crafted around an outline, a chronology, or an intuition. A story must evolve, a character must draw the reader in. If in structure only, this narrative changes the way you will read fiction. The stories, the chronology, and the manner of which they are used, create an atmosphere that engulfs the reader, teaches the reading mind that life, when witnessed and retold well, is more beautiful than fiction; a new mythology of truth is born. This book is a keystone to perceiving life, and living, as each day is a myth being told, and that all travels will bring us to tales of morality, love, and the sweet heart-ache of departure and return.
