Skeletons On The Zahara : A True Story Of Survival

by DEAN KING

Condition: Very Good


Little Brown & Co, April 2005. Trade Trade. Very Good. Very Good Softcover. Light soiling and shelfwear to covers. Remainder mark on textblock. Pages clean and tight in binding. Pictures available upon request. A locally owned, independent book shop since 1984.

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.
