Detailed Product Description
London, 1991, 1st UK edition. 277 pp, b/w photos. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

Alan Cooper took his 1932 Morris Minor across the Sahara. The Mau Mau uprising was at its height when Cooper assembled his paying passengers at his farm outside Nairobi. The motley crew were unacquainted - a worldly field biologist of 40 who recorded the whole trip with her 8mm movie camera, a genteel schoolmistress of uncertain age in search of romance, and a 17-year-old boy whose mother had insisted the trek would make a man of him.
 
While the strange quartet sped through equatorial Africa each sought to ignore other more sinister omens. But finally it was the desert that turned adventure into nightmare and brought British and French governments into conflict over the circumstances of rescue by the French Foreign Legion. The sequence of coincidences which led the author to uncover what actually took place is related in this story of how these four responded to each other and the appalling ordeal.
 
Travel writing at its best - the gripping true story of disaster in the Sahara.
