Motoring with Mohammed : Journeys to Yemen and the Red Sea Paperback
by Eric Hansen
Part of the Methuen non-fiction series
This travelogue begins with the terrifying account of the storm that left Eric Hansen and four companions shipwrecked on a deserted Red Sea island.
Rescued by smugglers and taken to the Yemen coast, Hansen found himself increasingly enthralled by this little-known land, intrigued by its customs, charmed by its natural beauty and captivated by its people as he travelled the country, seeking out its wildest geography and rarest wildlife while searching for a way to retrieve the travel journals he lost in the shipwreck.
A humorous mix of reportage, comedy and tension, this is a glimpse into a country insufficiently understood by the West, and into a culture at once secretive and friendly, alien and enchanting.
