To think of Egypt is to summon up images of pyramids, temples, and tombs. Perhaps the palm-fringed Nile springs to mind, or the exquisite Islamic monuments of medieval Cairo, or even the overgrown mega-city of today. Yet Egypt is, before all things, desert. Were it not for the Nile, this immense territory in the east of the Sahara would be perhaps the hottest, driest wasteland in the world. In this solitude, vegetation is scarce and animal life scarcer. The life of the people of Egypt has always taken place against the backdrop of this contrast between fertile land and the desert.
