"Most Saudis live in cities or towns... But some Saudis, a group of wandering herdsmen called the bedouin, have changed their way of life very little in the last thousand years.

It is only during the driest months that they move their herds from the scorched backland to the slightly greener fringes of the farming areas. They consider other Bedouin inferior, and marriage takes place only within the confines of their social group. "

Bedouin - Hukra Saudi Arabia - - - - 1968 Pinney, Roy. Vanishing Tribes. New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Co. (1968), pg. 90-91. "In Saudi Arabia, the Bedouin are divided into four classifications...
