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.

The images themselves and text are excellent. However the quality of printing leaves soemthing to be desired, and so detracts from the impact that the images should have.

There can never be another Wilfred Thesiger. What he did and competently photographed are particular to his time. A unique record.
