Description
Information
Driven by a desire to explore the moste remote, barren yet romantic places on earth, Martin Buckley set off on a two-year journey through the world's deserts. In the Sahara he was threatened with murder. In the Gobi, he hijacked a cycle-rickshaw. Dehydrating in the Sonora, he hallucinated fruit cocktails. Encountering the desert at its most extreme, he learned how to find water - and how to spit tobacco into a camel's nostril.

Images of the desert exert a powerful grip on the human imagination, from 'Lawrence Of Arabia' to 'Star Wars'. Deserts feel familiar, yet mysterious. The truth is that they are even stranger than we imagine. 'Grains Of Sand' is a passionate, profound and frequently funny evocation of the world's deserts and the people who live in them; an extraordinary global adventure, and a personal voyage of discovery.
