Descripción del producto
In 1982 my first African ride on a ratty XT500 ended halfway across the Sahara with a cracked petrol tank. Once I got out of that one I vowed never to return, but the lure of the dunes proved too great to a youthful despatch rider. Over the next decade I made several more forays into the Sahara and West Africa on, or travelling with motorbikes. They included an ill-fated motorcycle tour from which only one rider returned riding. Most of this book describes that tour, and in between accounts of my travels, I weave in historical and cultural episodes from the region, and discuss on the nature and appeal of desert travel.
Desert Travels was originally published as a paperback in 1996. This 1.5 version for Kindle has been lightly reworked to match a paperback reprint available at deserttravels.wordpress.com along with photos, maps and other material.
