Footsteps of Thesiger
AED 165.00

Famed British explorer Sir Wilfred Thesiger spent five years between 1946 and 1950 living with the Bedouin of Southern Arabia and crossing the legendary Rub Al Khali, or Empty Quarter, of the Arabian Desert. Sixty-five years after his first crossing, Adrian Hayes attempted to retrace Thesiger's footsteps with his own crossing of the desert by camel and foot over forty-four days, similarly accompanied by two Bedouin companions and a number of other travellers. With an absorbing narrative and captivating photographs of the terrain and people who still inhabit this harsh land, Footsteps of Thesiger inspires a spirit of adventure and an interest in the region's heritage.
