A fascinating read, which combines the history and geography of the Nile with a wonderful insight into the many and varied characters the writer met along his journey. The writing conjures up vivid imagery and is also very witty - thoroughly enjoyed this book.
I recently borrowed this book from a friend and then wanted my own copy. Good old amazon found a supplier of obscure second-hasnd books and I am thrilled now to have my own copy at a very reasonable price. Many thanks.
