|About the Book|
Oman is a stunningly beautiful country with a rich history and bountiful heritage set in a breathtaking landscape. As an ancient seafaring country, Oman has always been open to the world, and is now increasingly popular with discerning travellers and tourists. Since the accession of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said in 1970, Oman has thrived, adopting the best features of modern technology while keeping its own heritage and unique culture very much alive. In this book, Ozzie Newcombe s vibrant photographs capture the most enchanting of the country s sights, from the natural wonders of its soaring mountains, stark deserts, plunging coastal cliffs and lush green valleys, to the man-made achievements of ancient crafts and modern engineering. Oman s astonishing variety will surprise and delight both residents and visitors alike, and this book is a lasting celebration of one of the most fascinating countries in the world.
