About the Author
Born in 1932 in Cairo, Egypt, Adham Safwat rejected the formality of the legal training that his father had hoped he would pursue and instead spent many years exploring the beauty of the Red Sea and its then-rich coral and marine life. His adventures brought him closer to the fishermen and sailors of the Red Sea, and he learned about their ancient craft of navigating the waters of that great body of water. It was during this time that he also discovered his other passions, Roman and Arabic military history and astronomy. Safwat loved the sea and its lore and believed that every child should experience its wonder and majesty. He brought his family to the sea often and passed on his experiences to them and numerous friends. Safwat and his wife, Amira, currently reside in Glen Allen, Virginia.
