Michael Palin - SaharaI gratefully acknowledge a number of other people's efforts, including the Rough Guide to West Africa, Lonely Planet's Africa on a Shoestring, the Footprint guides to Morocco, Libya and Tunisia, Barnaby Rogerson's Cadogan Guide to Morocco and A Traveller's History of North Africa, Ross Velton's Bradt Guide to Mali, Kim Naylor's Discovery Guide to West Africa and James Wellard's The Great Sahara. Hollyman and Van Beek's beautiful book on the Dogon is one of the best on a difficult subject. Sanche de Gramont's The Strong Brown God and T. Coraghessan Boyle's Water Music were essential River Niger reading. I found the Eland edition of Mungo Park's Travels into the Interior of Africa indispensable and Quentin Crewe's In Search of the Sahara, Jeremy Keenan's Sahara Man, Richard Trench's Forbidden Sands and Martin Buckley's Grains of Sand informative and inspiring. Hachette's Guide de Sahara, Chris Scott's Sahara Overland and Simon Glen's Sahara Handbook are all good chunky guides that get right to the heart of desert travel.
