Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Welcome to the Kindle edition of Desert Travels, originally written in 1996.
Today, following years of much increased trafficking, banditry and terrorist activities, as well as nomadic rebellions and outright revolutions, tourism right across Sahara has collapsed. But it wasn't always like that. Led by the glamour of the original Dakar Rally and the advent of desert-capable motorcycles and 4x4s, the 1980s saw adventure travel flourish in the Sahara of Niger, Algeria and Mali. It’s unlikely those days will return. For once I found myself doing the right thing in the right place at the right time.
Desert Travels covers my first six desert biking trips, starting in 1982 on a ratty XT500 and winding up about a decade later with a long and fractious ride from Algeria to Mauritania via Timbuktu just before Algeria went down the pan. But most of this book describes a motorcycle tour in 1989 when I managed to scrape together half a dozen riders to follow me in a cantankerous Land Rover deep into the Algerian Sahara. Only one returned still riding.
You’ll find photos, maps and other material about the journeys described at: deserttravels.wordpress.com. A small run of Desert Travels is paperback will be available in early 2015.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great read for all adventure travellers, not limited to motorcycles 2 de abril de 2014

A great book by a well known author of motorcycling and touring books. Chris Scott is best known for his Adventure Motorcycling Handbook which is the pinnacle of motorcycle touring so it came as a bit of a shock to discover in the Kindle version of Desert Travels that he no longer uses a motorbike and considers it too dangerous. This version shows him, in a snapshot of history, initially describing his motorbike travels in Algeria and then following his Road to Damascus revelation, hitchhiking through the Gold Coast of Western African with their maniacal bus and taxi drivers. I was not sure which is more dangerous? The book itself keeps the reader interested and the Kindle is an updated version of the original. A good read for those who, like me, sit at home and pretend to be adventure travellers. PG

Well written and very down to earth. It turned out to be a surprisingly engrossing tale that I enjoyed very much.
Just understand that this is a recounting of various journeys taken through the Sahara by the author and not a travel or guide book and you will not be disappointed. A tidbit of history is added for good measure and helps round out the work.
Well worth the cost.

I had never heard of any of the places the author rode his bike. Very remote, very inhospitable and often dangerous. A real view of adventure in the most remote places of north Africa. A compilation of several trips.

Enjoyed the overall feel of the desert and history, but would have liked a map or two, an essential for travel books (in my opinion).

Good story about Desert Travels from the early 80s. A great snapshot in time to an era that has long passed. It is written in a story format so you feel like you are sitting at a campfire listening to an old traveler recount his trips. This story is more about the mindset of the trip and the adventures than a "guide book" type of journal. In other words, it isn't about going 400km to Tam and filling up at the BP, but more about taking a slightly different route on teh Piste and finding broken down folks, what they are like, where they came from and what they are doing out in the middle of the desert. Good stuff and well written.
