Summary
Alex Tinson is a St Ives-born vet who was literally plucked from the Australian outback to become chief vet in charge of the United Arab Emirates President's racing camels. He was given one mission: to make the President's camels the best in the UAE and, indeed, all of Arabia. Along the way he also cared for a menagerie of most unusual animals from pet cheetahs and monkeys to strange desert lizards. It has also given him a rare entree into the life of the uber-rich Gulf Royal families and the world of the Bedouins...This is the story of an extraordinarily successful and adventurous expatriate Australian. Compelling and intriguing, it takes you into a world that few have entered before
