Congratulations Michael! the book sounds like a very interesting and informative read.. will put it on my "read soon" list.. :)

"A rich, scholarly, beautifully crafted and illustrated account of deserts in all their diversity, not just their geology and wildlife, but also the human cultures that have made wilderness their home, and the art and poetry that has been inspired by arid remoteness."
--Richard Fortey, quoted in a notice from University of Chicago Press in the New York Review of Books

Veni, vidi, vere -- I came, I saw, I concurred. A treat for the eye and a tonic for the mind. In the caravan of desert literature, a new classic.

Suvrat and Richard - many thanks for your comments! And I'll be back to blogging shortly after an involuntary hiatus...
