    Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. A legend shattered by greed.

On the eve of the festival of Osiris, the loyal subjects of the Pharaoh gather in Thebes to pay tribute to their leader.

    Exploding with all the passion and rage of a bygone time, River God is a masterpiece of historical writing.
