Red Nile : a biography of the world's greatest river by Robert Twigger( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From religion, to language, to the stories rooted in our faith and history books, the Nile River has proven to be a constant fixture in mankind's tales. In this dazzling, idiosyncratic journey from ancient times to the Arab Spring, Red Nile navigates a meandering course through the history of the world's greatest river, exploring this unique breeding ground for creativity, power clashes, and constant change. Writer Robert Twigger connects the comprehensive history of the Nile with his personal experience of living in Egypt while researching the Nile's historical origins. Twigger covers the entirety of the river, charting the length of the Nile from its disputed origins through Africa on a whirlwind tour of the rulers, explorers, conquerors, generals, and novelists who painted the Nile "red. The result of this meticulously researched book is an all-inclusive history of this epic river and the incredible connections throughout history.--From publisher description
The extinction club by Robert Twigger( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Dutch and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... the brilliant, peculiar, and complex tale of the Milu. For one thousand years, the Milu, an exotic species of deer with the neck of a camel, the horns of a stag, the feet of a cow, and the tail of a donkey, existed only in the Chinese emperor's private park in Beijing. But in the second half of the nineteenth century a Basque missionary, Pére David, became the first Westerner ever to see a Milu. Transfixed by the strange beast, he risked his life to obtain a specimen, then embalmed it and sent it to Paris in a diplomatic bag. ... Within a very short time, every major nation in Europe possessed a Muli. But most failed to thrive and died quickly ... yet the exotic deer were able to survive in one place--Bedfordshire, England--due to the nurturing of a devoted caretaker, the 11th Duke of Bedford ..."--Jacket
Dr Ragab's universal language by Robert Twigger( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charlatan, guru, master of disguise, a simple opportunist or the great pretender--however one chooses to see him, one fact is certain: Dr. Ragab is a mysterious man. Talked about by everyone in 1920s Cairo, only a few get the chance to make his acquaintance, and fewer still--one person, in fact--get to study his life lessons. Hertwig is that lucky soul--or not so lucky, perhaps, not when he finds himself, at the very end of the second world war, imprisoned in a bunker by a gang of thugs. And yet there is a possible way out. Not in the conventional sense, it's true, but when you're holed up several feet underground, unsure of how long your captors plan to keep you alive, convention isn't necessarily a good thing, as Dr. Ragab would be the first to proclaim--and it's his Universal Language that may just provide Hertwig with the escape route he needs. As unconventional as the eponymous Ragab, this novel takes the reader on a surreal journey from Ealing to Egypt, via Germany."--Amazon.com

From his back garden Robert Twigger can see kingfishers swooping and crocodiles emerging from the grey-green expanse of the Nile.
