"George Monbiot investigates what could be the final struggles of Africa's surviving pastoral peoples. He also tells his own story, of a perilous journey through one of the world's harshest environments, writing with humour and a refreshing lightness of touch."
(Oliver Tickell, Daily Telegraph.)
"Required reading for anyone who wishes to understand better the problems of modern Africa."
(Niall Ferguson, Daily Mail)
"Monbiot's book has some disturbing sections, of beatings, killings, starvation and famine. But it also has passages describing great beauty, of landscapes, birds, weather and atmosphere ... An inquiring book by a sensitive man."
