An Egyptologist once called Omm Sety “the Living Egypt.” This book truly deserves to be called Omm Sety's life work.

With a foreword by famed Egyptologist Dr. Kent R. Weeks, Omm Sety makes tantalizing connections between ancient and modern Egyptian culture in this amazing new book. Omm Sety links ancient traditions with modern practices such as:

* Childhood
* Marriage
* Funerary Customs, Tombs and the Dead
* Supernatural Beings
* Magic and Magicians
* Demonic Possession
* Underground Marriages
* The Old Gods Still Survive
* Holidays
* At Home and Market
* Saints
* Agriculture
* Animals
* Clothing
* Dining and Food
* Medicine
* Social Customs
* Language and Sayings
* Folktales and Tales of Treasure

The manuscript for this amazing work stayed hidden away for nearly four decades until it was rediscovered and edited for publication by Dr. Nicole Hansen, an expert on the continuity of ancient Egyptian culture until the present.

This book is a must-have for those fascinated by ancient Egypt and those wanting to understand the origins of the contemporary culture of this important Middle Eastern country. For those interested in Omm Sety herself, the book provides new insights into her life, the people she knew and the places she lived.
