Explorer and travel writer Richard Bangs sets off for an incredible adventure on the great Nile River to uncover the history, myths and culture of the lost crocodiles of ancient Egypt. From Alexandria to Cairo, from the pyramids at Giza to the Valley of the Kings, Bangs explores the way the river and its fearsome "Lord" molded a civilization. Further upstream, he visits a temple dedicated to Sobek, the crocodile god, and searches for the beast in the waters of Lake Nasser.
