“this book fleshes out the ups and downs of the expedition… it is useful, lively background reading for anyone contemplating an expedition anywhere.”
50 Camels and She's Yours
What a wonderful selection of travel writing - the 5 authors each bring a different style and unique view on the world. Hivernel's "Why Mauritania?" transported me and made me look at my own world with different eyes. Immerse yourself in some armchair travels and there are even two reflections on the difficulty of coming home.
Chasing the Tiger
The second book in the series is a fun work of fiction layered upon a factual description of an exotic life in the Himalayan nation of Nepal, written by an author in residence there. The latest tale is a fast-paced and exciting adventure where the main characters encounter the local wild-life and cultures, with lovely line drawings of the animals interspersed in the text as amusing and interesting bonus material. Though aimed primarily at readers in the 8- to 12-year old age range, this book will bring pleasure to all who open it.
