Summary
An illustration of the life of Queen Sheba, deciphered through satellite images that track Sheba on ancient caravan routes through archaeological sites, suggesting that Sheba herself was the great figure, not her love, Solomon, as long thought by many. The author travels to Ethiopia, Arabia, Israel, and France searching for the truth behind the myth of the queen of Sheba, and uses modern technology to put the pieces of the puzzle in place
