Skeletons On The Zahara: A True Story Of Survival

by King, Dean

Condition: Fine in Fine DJ


New York: Little, Brown And Company. Hardcover. 2004. 1st Edition. 8vo 353pp . Fine in Fine DJ. B&W Illustrations. Story of an 1815 voyage on a ship that left Connecticut and shipwrecked off the coast of Africa .

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.
