Details

Famed British explorer Sir Wilfred Thesiger spent five years between 1946 and 1950 living with the Bedouin of Southern Arabia and crossing the legendary Rub al-Khali, or Empty Quarter, of the Arabian Desert. Sixty-five years after his first crossing, Adrian Hayes attempted to retrace Thesiger's footsteps with his own crossing of the desert by camel and foot over forty-four days, similarly accompanied by two Bedouin companions and a number of other travellers. With an absorbing narrative and captivating photographs of the terrain and people who still inhabit this harsh land, Footsteps of Thesiger inspires a spirit of adventure and an interest in the region's heritage.
