Show Summary Details


This chapter studies the trip to Egypt and Palestine, and notes that Alexander began planning for this while she and Kellogg were on their way to England. Alexander and Kellogg participated in the Temple Tour, despite the fact that they were not used to “taking tours.” Before they left for Egypt, Alexander inquired about a car belt that would allow a vehicle to travel across snow. She believed that the belt could be converted to run across a desert, thus making it the perfect field vehicle. The discussion also notes that after joining their tour group in Cairo, Alexander and Kellogg spent a few days sightseeing in the city. This is followed by an account of their journey to Palestine, their experiences in Jerusalem, and finally the harrowing event when Kellogg contracted typhoid fever and nearly died.
