Skeletons on the Zahara: A True Story of Survival (Advanced Reading Copy/ARC)

by King, Dean

Condition: Very Good


Little Brown & Co, 2004. Trade Paperback - VG - Book is clean and tight with light wear - ARC - 336 pages.. First Edition. Trade Paperback. Very Good. Advanced Reading Copy (ARC).

While there have been numerous historical adventure narratives published, this is the first major work to take place in the greatest desert of all. King retraced parts of Captain James Riley's three-month trek through the desert, going for days consuming only camel urine and locusts. The book is rich with the sort of detail one could only get from being on the scene, in the heart of the desert.
