The Veil : A Romance of Tunisia (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Veil: A Romance of Tunisia He was an elderly man, browned with weather, lined about the eyes through the constant wrinkling induced by the sun. Is companion, the officer, was about thirty years of age, alert, capable-looking, well-built; with restless, adventurous blue eyes thickly lashed with black - Celtic eyes which betokened at once instability and charm. Iie assisted the elder man to descend. The road grows better in a short distance, said the Arab as he swung down from the box. It was folly to attempt a camel track in this, the civilian grumbled again. By God, De Colombel, if I'd known we were in for this I'd have risked riding. The damage to one's spine wouldn't be half as serious as the injury done to one's temper. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
