Praise for Arabian Sands:
‘one of the greatest travel books of English literature’
Praise for Among the Mountains:
‘a matchless portrait of a vanished world’
‘the photographs alone make it worth a place on the traveller’s bookshelf’
‘Here is true grandeur in the landscape and true dignity in the man’
Wilfred Thesiger charts the time he spent living with the Bedu, including his legendary traverses of the Empty Quarter.
Wilfred Thesiger is the last of the great British eccentric explorers, a legendary figure renowned for his travels though some of the most inaccessible places on earth. Arabian Sands was his widely acclaimed first book and is recognized as one of the great travel classics.
His evocative prose and stunning photographs capture the spirit of the proud tribespeople who became his friends and the harsh landscape he inhabited with them in a way very few westeners have.
