An excellent book about one man's journey through the Sahel (a region just south of the Sahara in western Africa). Follow as Jeffrey Tayler travels through Chad, Nigeria, Niger, Mali and Senegal. Taking place in the winter of 2002/2003, you get to hear from the people of Africa their thoughts on Islam, Christianity, foreign aid, the war on terror, tradition vs progress and much more. One of the best best books I've read thus far on Africa, it's a relatively easy read and I at least flew through it. It didn't seem to lag and become laborious for me anywhere in the book. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Africa, foreign views of America or just plain anyone who has a desire to travel.

Travel the Sahel through Tayler's eyes. This writer's keen sense of observation will put you in the middle of the desert and leave you breathless before a land filled with extraordinary people and places. Hard reading at times, the Sahel is a very poor place and Tayler pulls no punches, but a travelogue of profound insight.
