About Book

Book Description
Shall I speak of Zeitoon? This, then: the Turks never conquered it! They came once and built a fort on the opposite mountainside, with guns to overawe us all. We took their fort by storm! We threw their cannon down a thousand feet into the bed of the torrent, and there they lie today! We took prisoner as many of their Arab zaptiehs as still were living -- It takes better than Osmanli to conquer the men of Zeitoon! (Jacketless library hardcover.)

Download Description
The gut of the pass rose toward Zeitoon at a sharp incline--a ramp of slippery wet clay, half a mile long, reaching across from buttress to buttress of the impregnable hills. It was more than a ridden mule could do to keep its feet on the slope, and we had to dismount. It was almost as much as we ourselves could do to make progress with the aid of sticks, and we knew at last what Kagig had meant by his boast that nothing on wheels could approach his mountain home. The poor wretches who had struggled so far with us simply gave up hope and sat down, proposing to die there.
