Praise for Amelia Peabody's Egypt: "This attractive book both informs and enchants."--Publishers Weekly on AMELIA PEABODY'S EGYPT
About the Author
Elizabeth Peters earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. During her fifty-year career, she wrote more than seventy novels and three nonfiction books on Egypt. She received numerous writing awards and, in 2012, was given the first Amelia Peabody Award, created in her honor. She died in 2013, leaving a partially completed manuscript of The Painted Queen.
Kristen Whitbread was Elizabeth Peters's personal assistant for more than twenty years, engaging in a diversity of endeavors on behalf of the author, including (though certainly not limited to) researching, writing, and editing. She received a BA in literature from Hood College.

Under the section marked "People and Places" Heinrich Schliemann received a whole paragraph. This must make up for the lack of a bibliography and index.

This is, in short, an astonishing book. It's massive.
And it's loaded with stuff. Pictures, descriptions, biographies. Heaps of it. The book doesn't add any new story (really) to this series, but it is a very handy, alphabetized reference guide to the people, and the places, and the animals.
I highly recommend for any fan. The only possible way this book could have been better (for me) is if it were one of the vault type books, with removable letters and maps and....stuff. You know the kind of book I mean, right? That's the only way this could have been improved upon.
Grab your copy, and head out with Amelia and family. Enjoy!
