In the classic literary tradition of Bruce Chatwin and Geoff Dyer, rich and exquisitely written account of travels in six deserts on five continents that evoke the timeless allure of these remote and forbidding places

One-sixth of the earth's surface is classified as desert. Restless, unhappy in love, and intrigued by the Desert Fathers who forged Christian monasticism in the Egyptian desert, Will Atkins decided to travel in six of the world's driest, hottest places: the Empty Quarter of Oman, the Gobi Desert of North China, the Great Victoria Desert of Australia, the man made desert of the Aral Sea in Kazhakstan, the Black Rock and Sonoran deserts of the American Southwest, and the Sinai Desert of Egypt. Each of his travel narratives effortlessly weaves aspects of natural history, historical background and present-day reportage into a compelling tapestry that reveals the human appeal of these often inhuman landscapes.
