"Between Sea and Sahara" is one of the great classics of travel-writing about the Middle East - a landmark in the story of Europe's fascination with "The Orient". Travelling in Algeria in the third decade of French colonialization, Fromentin weaves a tale of passion, drama and adventure, a masterpiece that established him as one of the foremost Orientalists of the age. He reveals much about the roots of a colonial relationship which continues to affect Algeria today.
