Skeletons on the Zahara: A True Story of Survival

by Dean King

Condition: Used:Good


Back Bay Books, 2005-04-12. Reprint. Paperback. Used:Good.

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.
