    A travelogue of four British soldiers and two Bedouin on a loop of Jordan by camel in search of the legend of Lawrence of Arabia Written as a day by day log, it immersed me in what it feels like to live as a desert nomad for a month poor food, uncompromising weather, uncomfortable camels, lice, and most difficult of all, unknowable Bedouin A straight forward, enjoyable tale.
