O knihe:

South from Barbary is the compelling account of an epic 1,500-mile journey by camel across the Libyan Sahara, retracing the old slave trade routes from the coast of North Africa - once known as Barbary - to the fabled oasis of Kufra. Marozzi traces the past of this turbulent country in a dazzling blend of travel writing and history. He evokes the poetry and solitude of the desert, the misery of the slave trade, the companionship of man and beast, the plight of benighted nation and the humour and generosity of its resilient people.
