Inhaltsangabe: An Expanded Collection of Authentic Arabic Names and Arabian Tales from the Desert Co-written with Arabian horse breeder Kellie Kolodziejczyk, Bachir Bserani supplies more than just a mere listing of Arabic words with meanings. He transcends this by providing hand-picked Arabic names that are easily pronounced by Roman language speakers. The Arabic names are written in both the masculine and feminine form in Romanized Arabic. Next to each name is the English meaning as well the phonetic pronunciation. This is a very important aspect of the book and is what sets this book apart from standard Arabic dictionaries. As with any language, if the sound is not spoken correctly, the meaning of the word may be altered. Filled with breathtaking, full-color pictures throughout: The artwork on the front and back cover (as well as the art throughout the volume) is by the world-famous artist Ali Al Mimar. The stunning photography is by Gigi Grasso, Nasr Marei, Darryl Larson and Rik Van Lent Jr., and others
Über den Autor: Born in Aleppo, Syria near the area of the Shomar and Thai tribes, Bachir Bserani s passion for horses was passed to him through his father, a cavalry member who often traveled on horseback through the regions of Deir el Zoor, Hasakeh, and Hama. From a young age Bachir was naturally drawn to horses. He traveled many journeys with his father, visiting the Bedouin tribes to solve a problem, or to discuss a bargain or two. As a young boy he always, as is the custom in the desert, watched and listened to the elders, but never asked questions except to his father. And it is through these travels during the scorching daytime heat of the desert, and from beneath the bright stars in the cool desert evening that his knowledge about Arabian horses came to him. In 1970 Bachir arrived in the United States, married, and in 1973 was told that he was entitled to U.S. citizenship. During the process of obtaining US citizenship Bachir was asked to change his name to a common American name. Of course he politely declined to change his name, as what name could compare to the beautiful name given by his parents ... Bachir (The One Who Brings Good News). He would keep his birth name, and speak his name with pride of his heritage and of the Arabian Desert from where he was born. Bachir s first book Authentic Arabian Horse Names by Bachir Bserani with Kellie Kolodziejczyk was published in 2004. In 2008 he released a self titled companion audio CD based on the Arabic-English section of this book. On the CD Bachir recites each name individually in his native Arabic tongue and then gives the English translation. Other credits include educational seminars and articles on the Bedouin tradition of naming foals. On occasion, Bachir will make appearances for book signings at various Arabian horse and Saluki dog events.
