Jean-Marc Durou was born in Algeria in 1951. He is a professional photographer and he has written widely about the Sahara and other deserts. Brings to life the majestic mountains, lush oases, and shifting sands that make up the grand and diverse landscapes of the Sahara. Includes historic drawings and paintings by early Western adventurers and the personal accounts of the book’s seven essayists.
A gifted photographer’s arresting color pictures bring to life the majestic mountains, lush oases, great shifting sands, and fascinating peoples that make up the incredible landscapes of the famous Sahara. “The desert cannot be described; it must be lived,” states the Saharan nomad whose text opens this sensitive appreciation of the world’s largest desert. For readers who will never experience that reality, this volume’s stunning photographs and engrossing text will evoke its essence. From Timbuktu and its legendary gold riches to Tuareg nomads and their battles with European expeditions for control of the land, the book unfolds the Sahara’s dramatic history of exploration and exploitation. Added to this background are thrilling personal accounts written by explorers, naturalists, and journalists whose own tales of adventure and survival in the ever-changing environment of the Sahara match the passion and sense of wonder conveyed in Durou’s photographs.
