ABOUT THIS BOOK
Few Westerners have seen the remote Suguta Valley in northern Kenya. Mickey Mestel has seen it no fewer than four times—on foot. This distant, unforgiving land that’s been called “the harshest terrain on the planet” has planted a permanent seed in this traveler’s heart; and it is one that needs no water or sun. Enduring extreme heat, cold, thirst and hunger, the danger of bandits and wild animals, and mind-bending cultural differences, Mickey has lived to tell of things the rest of us never knew we could dream about.
