Abstract:

A book for young readers about the history and culture of the Middle Eastern country Kuwait.

Situated at the edge of the Persian Gulf, this small and oil-rich country only became an independent nation in 1961. The whole of Kuwait is covered by a dry and undulating desert, which leads to the wealthy chalets and beach houses on the coast. The Kuwaiti people lived through the Gulf War in 1991, but since then they have experienced peace and prosperity in the otherwise tumultuous region. Readers will learn more about the Kuwaitis, their land, and their culture in this informative book, featuring vibrant photographs and rich narratives. -- Publisher
