In Desert and Wilderness

by Henryk Sienkiewicz

An outstanding story and the most entertaining book I have read in years.

Written in 1910, this book is more intelligent than most and, while the plot seems simple (a journey through Africa of two kidnapped children), you would be gravely mistaken to presume to guess how it plays out.

Henryk Sienkiewicz introduces the reader to a series of adventures that are freshly unique, historically accurate, and truly impossible to predict. He develops his hero, 14 year old Stas Tarkowski, from a boisterous child to a brave – honorable - young man, and leads the reader through settings (truly from desert to wilderness) which are richly described and laced with fascinating facts.

If you are looking for a fresh take on adventure, with a warm tale of a young man’s uncommon valor, download this book… and enjoy.
