Summary
In the 19th century, Sir Richard Francis Burton--Oxford-educated spy and adventurer--became the first Englishman to enter the Muslim city of Mecca. Disguised as a dervish, Burton braved the harsh desert climate, Bedouin bandits, and the scrutiny of Muslim travelers to reach the forbidden city.
