A Bedouin Boyhood by Isaak Diqs
A moving and gripping account of life among the Bedouin as they transition from nomads with wandering flocks and herds to planters and villagers. Isaak Diqs recounts his early years among his Bedouin tribesmen at the edge of the Negev desert in Palestine. He tended sheep and attended special Bedouin rituals surrounding marriage, death, and the feast of Ramada. What emerges is a touching portrait of a simple life with traditions unaltered for generations. But then the new state of Israel was created – and his people were dispersed, impoverished and condemned to live as refugees. Diqs recounts these events without rancour.
