Skeletons on the Zahara: A True Story of Survival

Dean King


all over the place hailed as a masterpiece of historic event, this enchanting narrative recounts the reports of twelve American sailors who have been shipwrecked off the coast of Africa in 1815, captured by way of barren region nomads, offered into slavery, and subjected to a hellish two-month trip during the bone-dry center of the Sahara. The ordeal of those males - who chanced on themselves confirmed through barbarism, homicide, hunger, loss of life, dehydration, and adverse tribes that roamed the desolate tract on camelback - is made indelibly brilliant during this gripping account of braveness, brotherhood, and survival.
