In Search of the Sahara

For two years and 25,000 miles Quentin Crewe,photographer Timothy Beddow,and various more or less durable companions roamed the greatest desert in the world.It is not the most hospitable of places,especially for a man in a wheelchair.In vehicles that groaned and spluttered in the stifling heat they drove down tracks that were sometimes pitted,cratered river beds,sometimes faint traces liable to disappear suddenly in the sand and dust.Their main concerns were always water,food and the way. A true story of adventure.
