"Donald Ryan is a rare bird--a field archaeologist who can write with verve and immediacy. I heartily recommend his book to all Egyptology buffs." --Barbara Mertz ( a.k.a. Elizabeth Peters), author of Temples, Tombs, and Hieroglyphs A real-life "Indiana Jones," Donald P. Ryan, Ph.D., offers a breathtaking personal account of his adventures in archaeology in Beneath the Sands of Egypt. Fans of The Lost City of Z will thrill to the exploits of this "unconventional archaeologist" as he retrieves the remains of Egypt's past--including his breakthrough discovery in the Valley of the Kings of Egypt's famous female pharaoh, Hatshepsut.
