My Life and Travels: An Anthology
Later he made many mountain journeys in the awesome ranges of the Karakorams, the Hindu Kush, Ladakh and Chitral. After these varied and often dangerous adventures among fast-disappearing cultures, Thesiger settled down to spend over twenty years living mostly among the pastoral Samburu in Northern Kenya, until 1994 when he finally returned to England permanently. These experiences have, over the years, provided rich material for writings which express a romantic but austere vision, and for exquisite photographs which capture the spirit of a bygone era.
This book contains extracts from the eight books Thesiger published to great acclaim between 1959 and 1998, most notably 'Arabian Sands', 'Marsh Arabs' and 'The Life of My Choice'.
