Abridged from the original three volumes, this edition features color plates and 65 monochrome photos taken at the time of the excavation, as well as 2 appendices. This classic adventure tells the story of a journey that may never be repeated--a trip back through 3,000 years to discover the life--anddeath--of a pharaoh.
