The Lure and Lore of Deserts with Sandy Mortimer
Discover what lures humans to deserts from Egypt to Jordan in the Middle East as well as in North America. Visit the mountain of Masada, the Kerak and other ancient castles, the valley of Wadi Rum, the magnificent Nabatean city of Petra, and Jerash, one of the best preserved Roman cities. The Sonoran, Mohave and Chihuahuan deserts in Arizona and Utah also speak of those lured to them throughout the centuries. Explore over 21,000 glyphs chipped in rock, white gypsum crystal dunes, and legendary ghost towns and masonry ruins that were home to prehistoric Salado people.
