Sahara: The Extraordinary History of the World’s Largest Desert
Marq de Villiers (au); Sheila Hirtle (au)
In the parched and seemingly lifeless heart of the Sahara Desert, earthworms find enough moisture to survive. Four major mountain ranges interrupt the flow of dunes and gravel plains, and sometimes waterfalls cascade from their peaks. Even the sand amazes: Massive dunes can appear almost overnight and be gone just as quickly. We think we know the Sahara, the largest and most austere desert on Earth -- yet it is full of surprises. “A brilliant and evocative biography of the land and its people.” “Part travel memoir, part history lesson, and part archeological dig.” “Gives readers a clear understanding of what it’s like to live in and to visit the sandy expanses of the world’s greatest desert.” Maps and photos.
