New book on Dhofar forthcoming from Dr. Andrew Spalton and Dr. Hadi al Hikmani: “Dhofar: From Monsoon Mountains to Sand Seas”

Andrew Spalton and Hadi Al Hikmani’s book, The Arabian Leopards of Oman (2014), is an important resource for anyone interested in the Dhofar region and I am so pleased to see that they have another book coming out soon: Dhofar: From Monsoon Mountains to Sand Seas, Celebrating the Natural Diversity of Oman’s Dhofar Region.
