520    Pearls to Oil From Pearls to Oil is a testament of the 
       challenges contended by extraordinary men who initiated 
       the search for oil in the United Arab Emirates, in the 
       years between the two World Wars. The book features never-
       before-published copies of letters, notes and reports 
       complementing the research, which itself stems from the 
       archives of the Abu Dhabi Petroleum Company (ADPC) and 
       other literature recorded by British Government officials.
       With rare photographs, maps and diagrams alongside the in-
       depth narrative, this book is a great asset for scholars, 
       residents and visitors interested in the history of this 
       land.  -- Book Description Amazon.
