Summary
- Dean King has a strong following as an authority on Patrick O'Brian. More than 250,000 copies of his O'Brian-related books are in print.- King retraced parts of the epic, 800-mile journey he writes about, so the book is rich with the sort of detail one could only get from being on the scene, in the heart of the desert.- While there have been numerous historical adventure narratives published in recent years, this is the first major work to take place in the desert--and in the greatest desert of all, at that.- Two of the survivors wrote books about their experiences, one of which sold over one million copies and was read by, among others, a young Abraham Lincoln.- Captain James Riley and his group of survivors lost up to half their body weight on their three-month trek through the desert, going for days consuming only camel urine and locusts
Summary
Chronicles the hardships encountered by twelve American sailors who, in 1815, were shipwrecked on the coast of North Africa, captured, sold into slavery, and sent on a difficult odyssey through the perilous heart of the Sahara
