Quiet for a Tuesday : Solo in the Algerian Sahara, Hardback Book

Quiet for a Tuesday : Solo in the Algerian Sahara Hardback


A solo, off-tracks Sahara expedition where the author faced ... unusual problems: his maps and satellite images were confiscated in mid-Sahara.

But he went on to complete a complex, demanding and, at times, hazardous 700-mile off-piste route to visit and photograph the extraordinary landscapes he was determined to see.

A carefully calculated risk, not reckless buccaneering, executed with considerable care.

With one or two nasty surprises. Told tongue-in-cheek - with humour, a passion for the desert, a boundless sense of wonder, a love of nature, technical detail - and accompanied by achingly beautiful pictures of Algeria's pristine Sahara.

The story finishes with some sharp opinion and proposals for a Protected Area in the Sahara - with signs of a light at the end of the tunnel.
