Sir Terence Clark's Salukis: Here, There and Everywhere is part-memoir, part-travelogue, and explores, in lively and unprecedented detail, the history and significance of the Saluki across the world. Indigenous to the Arabian peninsula, the desert-bred Saluki has for centuries been revered, and remains as highly valued today for its elegance and intelligence. Sir Terence's own life and work have been profoundly influenced by this ancient breed. His commitment to the study, enjoyment and preservation of these 'Companions of Kings' has taken him far and wide and introduced him to extraordinary people and places: in Iraq and Oman (where he was British Ambassador), throughout the Middle East and across Syria, into Central Asia, China and Russia. Beautifully illustrated with personal photographs, artwork and calligraphy, this book interweaves Sir Terence's fascinating life story with the history of the breed throughout the region. His passion for Salukis is infectious - whether for hunting, showing, coursing, breeding or simply companionship, the reader cannot help but share the love.

Stella is a Saluki, a purebred Arabian Desert princess and somewhat of a diva. Much to her chagrin, she has fallen into the hands of a family of infidels and is forced to reside with them and their revolting common dog. She, on the other hand, dreams of a life amongst her fellow Bedouin canines, roaming the deserts and hunting for game. Stella spends her time plotting a regime change, passing her days in captivity by tormenting both the infidels who think they own her and their dog. This is the diary of a sleek canine princess, who documents her days with her owners and the methods she employs to torment them. The story takes place over a two-year period in the home of British ex-patriots living in Saudi Arabia. This clever novel will take you where you have never gone before. Living With Infidels: The Diary of a Saluki - A Hound's Tail is a story you will not soon forget. First-time author Karen Ibbotson was inspired to write this tale by the crazy antics of her dogs. Born in North Yorkshire, she currently lives in Saudi Arabia. Publisher's website: http: //

Now he has the chance to earn a passing grade for the 20th century and promotion to the 21st.'But a dark shadow follows him through the decades and sabotages his efforts, so Spring 1971 threatens to be a morbid echo of itself.58-year-old Peter Federson married the wrong girl and rejected his true love. He flunked out of college, which led to a failed army enlistment, failed jobs, and failed relationships. One day, Pete took a handful of pills and washed them down with vodka in his trashy trailer in suburban Chicago.In a haze, Peter took a train to Carbondale, Illinois, and passed out at Southern Illinois University, where he awakened in 1971.Peter Federson is in college again.Now Pete can marry his true love, Catherine, pass algebra—the course that got him thrown out of college the first time and finally earn his degree.But a malevolent algebra instructor tries to flunk him, his wife-to-be won't let him go, a riot shakes the campus, and something within Pete doesn't want to change.SIU's colors are maroon and white, and the Saluki is its mascot, but maroon has a more sinister meaning in this story, for Peter Federson is marooned in 1971—a Saluki Marooned.

One of the oldest known breeds of domesticated dogs, the Saluki traveled throughout the Middle East with desert tribes, who valued the dogs for their ability to hunt gazelles. Famously painted on the walls of the Pharaohs’ tombs, the Salukis’ history intrigued English dog enthusiasts who were instrumental in popularizing the breed and importing it to Europe and the United States in the early 20th century. This book tells the story of those who brought the Saluki to the West, most notably Florence Amherst, who discovered the dogs while in Egypt and went on to breed 50 litters. Other world travelers who fell under the Salukis’ spell included Lady Anne Blunt, Austen Layard and Gertrude Bell. Also covered are lesser-known Saluki aficionados, mainly military officers who hunted with their hounds in Iraq, Syria, Palestine, and Egypt and sought to replicate that experience at home.

"Thus spoke Pope Paul III on learning that Cellini had murdered a fellow artist, so great was Cellini's reputation in Renaissance Italy. A renowned sculptor and goldsmith, whose works include the famous salt-cellar made for the King of France, and the statue of Perseus with the head of the Medusa, Cellini's life was as vivid and enthralling as his creations.
