Salukis in My Life : Her, there and everywhere from the Arab World to China - (Hardcover)
About this item
Sir Terence Clark’s The Salukis in my Life 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, Russia and China. 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.
