By Wilfred Thesiger. From 1945, Thesiger spent five years exploring in and around the vast, waterless desert, the "Empty Quarter" of Arabia. Traveling amongst the Bedu people, he experienced their everyday challenges of hunger and thirst, the trials of long marches beneath the relentless sun, the bitterly cold nights and the constant danger of death if it was discovered he was a Christian "infidel." Written before the discovery of oil transformed the region, this travel book was characterized by the author as "a memorial to a vanished past, a tribute to a once magnificent people." Grades 9 and up. Index. Illustrated. Penguin. 347 pages.
