Sahara Unveiled: A Journey Across the Desert

William Langewiesche

Publisher: Vintage Books

Format: Paperback

The world's vastest and most forbidding desert is revealed in all its cruelty and wonder in this masterpiece of contemporary travel writing by the author of Cutting for Sign.William Langewiesche crossed the Sahara from Algiers to Dakar, determined to see it as its inhabitants do, braving its natural and human dangers and depending on its sparse sustenance and suspect charity. He was feted by a devout Muslim architect, nearly murdered by a narcissistic arms smuggler, and introduced to merchants, market women, and fixers. He observes the world he traveled through with such acuity and eloquence that Sahara Unveiled hats been compared with the works of Bruce Chatwin, Wilfred Thesiger, and Paul Theroux.
