Summary
Once Timbuktu was the seat of African civilization and the world's richest city, romanticised by the great 16th century traveller Leo Africanus, now the middle of nowhere. Half a millennium later, guided by these famous writings, Nicholas Jubber set out on a journey which crossed the Atlas Mountains, the Western Sahara and the Niger River to uncover the mythic city, liberated after a full year under the black flag of jihadis. It is a part of the world that remains teeth-janglingly dangerous, as witnessed in further terrorist atrocities in Mali in 2015. He was taken, in disguise, into the desert to learn the age-old skills of the nomads and found out why their continued existence is so essential to the Sahara and yet so under threat. Jubber tells a deeply moving story of resilience and compassion in the face of terror as well as a grand adventure tale across the sands of the Sahara
