A Desert Dies chronicles Michael Asher's life with desert communities in the Sahara over three drought-filled years. While Michael came to appreciate the allure of a nomadic life in isolation, he also saw how the perennial failure of rains devastated the way of life of even the hardiest of residents.

Shortlisted for the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award for 1986-87

A classic travel writing piece previously published by Longman's and Penguin Books in 1984 and 1986 respectively.
