Arabian Sands is Wilfred Thesiger's record of his extraordinary journey through the parched "Empty Quarter" of Arabia. Educated at Eton and Oxford, Thesiger was repulsed by the softness and rigidity of Western life-"the machines, the calling cards, the meticulously aligned streets." In the spirit of T. E. Lawrence, he set out to explore the deserts of Arabia, traveling among peoples who had never seen a European and considered it their duty to kill Christian infidels. His now-classic account is invaluable to understanding the modern Middle East.

'One of the very few people who in our time could be put on the pedestal of the great explorers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries' David Attenborough An exquisite pictorial record, charting the career and outstanding achievements of one of the country's most distinguished travel writers and photographers, and the twentieth century's greatest explorer. Sir Wilfred Thesiger was born in 1910 at the original British Legation - a collection of wattle-and-daub tukuls - in Addis Ababa, and spent his early years in Abyssinia. He was educated at Eton and Oxford and at the age of twenty attended the coronation of HIM Haile Selassie at the emperor's personal invitation. Three years later he made his first expedition into the country of the murderous Danakil tribe. He joined the Sudan political service in 1935 and served in the War in Abyssinia and the Middle East with Special Operations Executive and the Special Air Service under David Stirling. After that, he traversed the Empty Quarter twice whilst living among the Bedu, and spent several years with the Marshmen of Iraq. He made many mountain journeys in the awesome ranges of the Karakorams, the Hindu Kush, Ladakh and Chitral. Following these varied and

Mit Nabokov in der Eisenbahn, mit Graham Greene auf der Flucht vor giftigen Spinnen und mit Chatwin auf Wanderschaft - Das »Tao des Reisens« ist die Quintessenz aus den Erlebnissen und Einsichten reisender Schriftsteller. Theroux untersucht den Inhalt von Reisegepäck, durchleuchtet das Gefühl des Fremdseins und probiert unangenehm exotische Gerichte. Dabei kommen in diesem philosophischen Handbuch auch imaginäre Reisen nicht zu kurz - denn letztlich lässt sich lesend genauso gut die Welt erkunden. Paul Therouxs Grundsätze des Reisens: 1. Verlass dein Zuhause 2. Reise alleine 3. Reise mit leichtem Gepäck 4. Nimm eine Landkarte mit 5. Reise auf dem Landweg 6. Geh zu Fuß über eine Grenze 7. Führe ein Reisetagebuch 8. Lies einen Roman, der nichts mit dem Ort zu tun hat, an dem du dich befindest 9. Wenn du schon ein Handy dabei hast, vermeide wenigstens, es zu benutzen 10. Finde einen Freund
