Summary
To mark his sixty-fifth birthday, novelist and travel writer Mewshaw decided to take a 4,000 mile trip across North Africa. The resulting book is filled with the thrills and chills of the traditional traveler's tale, including food riots, beheadings, a derelict Star Wars set, and a cast of memorable characters. As the author describes his journey, he also dishes out a sizeable portion of history and politics, giving readers a good picture of life in contemporary Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco. One of the most memorable of recent travelogues, Mewshaw's book will appeal to anyone thinking of traveling to North Africa, as well as to readers who like a ripping good story
