Secrets from the Sand

My Search for Egypt's Past

Zahi Hawass

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

The world's best known Egyptologist uncovers the stories behind his many excavations.

Zahi Hawass, familiar to millions from his many television appearances, provides stirring descriptions of his life's work accompanied by many previously unpublished photographs. He takes us from the famous monuments at Giza, where he supervised the restoration of the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid and excavated the cemetery of the pyramid builders, to the Valley of the Golden Mummies in Bahariya Oasis.
