Book DescriptionNour has lost her father. She has also lost the place she was born in and now lives in the Syrian town of Homs, along with her sisters and mother. And so, by the fig tree in the garden, Nour whispers the stories her Baba once told her, so that the roots of the tree will carry those stories back to where her father is buried and he won't feel so alone. Her favourite is the story of Rawiya, a young girl from the twelfth century who left her home in search of adventure, dressed as a boy. But Syria is changing and it isn't long before protests and shelling destroy the peace of the quiet city. As Nour begins her own journey as a refugee, she draws strength and inspiration from the voyage of Rawiya, who became apprenticed to the famous mapmaker, Al Idrisi, and who battled mythical creatures and endured epic battles in the attempt to compile the most accurate map of the world ever made.
Editorial ReviewA very good book, and an important, eye-opening one too.- Interzone. This imaginative yet very real look into war-torn syria is a must.- Book list online. The map of salt and stars presents an arab world in full possession of its immense historical and cultural biography, marred by its modern tragedies but not exclusively defined by them.- Book page
