This pictorial book of 200 pictures, published in 2004, by Thesigers authorised biographer is a pale shadow of Thesigers own book of 700 pictures namely "Visions of a Nomad"publshed in1987.
This book has a 50 page biography then 200 pictures which can only be considered secondd best as thesigers best pictures,by his own admission,are in "Visions of a Nomad"
The biography section of the book is good and gives a pretty detailed account of his life of exploration and adventure while the pictu]res are are only classifed by place-Africa,Asia or Arabia -By minute type at the bottom of the page.
Not to be recommended get the1987 book instead.
