B day is for…BEDOUIN.
My favourite book when I was growing up was The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley. I loved it. The main character gets taken by a native tribe…they live a Bedouin lifestyle. I thought it was the coolest thing.
Harry Crewe is an orphan girl who comes to live in Damar, the desert country shared by the Homelanders and the secretive, magical Free Hillfolk. When Corlath, the Hillfolk King, sees her for the first time, he is shaken — for he can tell that she is something more than she appears to be. He will soon realize what Harry has never guessed: she is to become Harimad-sol, King”s Rider, and carry the Blue Sword, Gonturan, which no woman has wielded since the legendary Lady Aerin bore it into battle, generations past.
Corlanth is the Bedouin king. Think Kaleesie of Game of Thrones. That sort of world. Here’s a bit of what’s really in that lifestyle.
