"Awakened suddenly by a high lingering call, Biff Brewster watched the dawn light on the homes, oil derricks, and processing towers of Aramco City, and the vast Arabian desert that lay beyond. Little did Biff realize that within a short while he and his new friend Ahmed would be traveling via "Cadillac" camel on that same desert, fighting exhaustion, heat, thirst, and a sandstorm. When Biff learned of the disappearance of Suji, the golden stallion, a royal gift to Ahmed, he offered to help in the search. A trail of horses' hoofs led the two boys to an isolated village in the middle of the desert where they stumbled upon a deserted minaret. From its top, they viewed a black Cadillac and a strange outline of an oil mechanism fingered in the sand; they overheard a man in a white abbas speaking with another in Arab dress; and an odor peculiar to oil reached their nostrils. Biff and Ahmed suspected that all this might have something to do with the Arabs' oil-field pressure problem which the boys' fathers were researching. But, with their slim chance for survival, would Biff and Ahmed be able to get this puzzling information to the men? Here is a story with a fascinating background, waiting to be read--and kismet has placed it right in your hands."--Grosset & Dunlap, Inc
