Arabian Sands

Wilfred Thesiger  

“The record of his extraordinary journeys through the parched ‘Empty Quarter’ of Arabia.”

“‘Wilfred Thesiger is perhaps the last, and certainly one of the greatest, of the British travellers among the Arabs … The narrative is vividly written, with a thousand little anecdotes and touches which bring back to any who have seen these countries every scene with the colour of real life’ – Sunday Times”
