How and why does someone become the first person to obtain federal government permission to import camel milk as a treatment for autism? And why should anyone care? This armchair adventure answers these questions and then some. When Christina Adams suspected that camel milk might help her son with autism, a faraway doc helped her smuggle some into the United States. Her son got dramatically better overnight, and off Adams went to find camels and discover why they are cherished as family members and hailed as healers. She visits the camel farms of Arab royals and meets passionate Amish farmers, elusive Indian camel caregivers, and whiteswathed Tuareg nomads. But the most fascinating characters are the camels themselves, cute and mischievous but also adept fighters. Their imposing teeth and height scared Adams even as their soft lips and gentle, curious eyes won her over. Readers, too, will be won over by this moving and rollicking ode to “camel people” and the creatures they adore.
