In addition to Petra, Jordan's deservedly its most famous site, the incomparable desert vistas of Wadi Rum, the sub-tropical valley corridor and Gilead's wooded limestone uplands equally leave the visitor in amazement. With access to the Red and Dead Seas, a visitor can experience the full range of the Jordanian biblical landscape. Roman urban life in the East at the time of Christ is here, as are sites shedding light on Old Testament peoples like the Ammonites. Travel through Jordan aims to relate both well-known and little known sites to the scriptural background in which they belong.
