Discusses explorations of the world's deserts by men and women both brave and foolhardy.

This breathtaking pictorial takes us on a journey through one of the least-known, most forbidding terrains in the world: the Rub Al Khali, known by many as the 'Empty Quarter'. As Saudi photographers Mohammed Babelli and Dr. Abdulaziz Al Obaida prove to us page after page, however, we find that the Rub Al Khali is far from 'empty'; it contains an almost dizzying palate of colors, textures, life forms and moments of elemental natural wonder. Chronicling their rare, full-scale expedition around the portion of the Rub Al Khali contained within the Saudi Arabian borders, the photographers offer us a rare view of the Empty Quarter in all of its stark beauty and imposing geography.

The preponderance of pre-1984 records in the Empty Quarter is a bias resulting
from there being few reports from that ... Flocks are formed by birds vacating
breeding quarters in the arid regions, including the whole of the Empty Quarter.

Reading these books is to see the world afresh, to rediscover a time when many cultures were quite strange to each other, where legends and stories were treated as facts and in which so much was still to be discovered.

Restless, gripped by an overwhelming wish to make a name for himself in a world ever more hemmed in by progress and 'civilization', Thesiger (1910-2003) embarked on his amazing journeys across Saudi Arabia's Empty Quarter to test himself and to show what could still be done. The result was a monument both to his resilience and to the Bedu who guided him and who emerge as the book's real heroes. Great Journeys allows readers to travel both around the planet and back through the centuries - but also back into ideas and worlds frightening, ruthless and cruel in different ways from our own. Few reading experiences can begin to match that of engaging with writers who saw astounding things- Great civilisations, walls of ice, violent and implacable jungles, deserts and mountains, multitudes of birds and flowers new to science. Reading these books is to see the world afresh, to rediscover a time when many cultures were quite strange to each other, where legends and stories were treated as facts and in which so much was still to be discovered.
