The Story

(The chronicles of Indy's youthful adventures begin with "Old Indy" relating to two jaded youths his departure from Princeton as a boy in 1908 to accompany his father's lecture tour around the world.)

The Joneses their first stop is an archeological dig in Egypt's Valley of the Kings where young Indy and his tutor, Miss Helen Seymour, meet T.E. Lawrence, the legendary Lawrence of Arabia.
While exploring a tomb Indy uncovers an ancient mummy plus a fresh corpse. With the help of T.E. Lawrence, Indy manages to solve the murder mystery and a theft of an artifact, a small Jackal idol. But the murderer/thief already escaped the valley with the idol.
The murder mystery has barely been solved or young Indy finds himself back into danger when he is kidnapped by slave-trading brigands. Dragged on a terrifying journey across the burning sands of North Africa to the slave markets of Marrakesh.
