Overview

It started off innocently. When a friend casually remarked that he had a new Land Rover in Africa, the author volunteered to retrieve it. What Steven's friend failed to mention was that the car had been confiscated by the Minister of the Mines.

Unable to spring the Land Rover, Stevens and his companion, a former fashion model, purchased an ancient Toyota and set out for Algiers via the Sahara.

To get there, they battled killer ants in Cameroon, pacified revolutionary soldiers in the middle of Lake Chad and coaxed the always reluctant Toyota across the world's hottest desert. But they made it, battered and scathed, to the shore of the Mediterranean.

"Steven's wins accolades for this hilarious account of a benighted journey across the skull of Africa." (Kirkus Reviews)

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Stevens and a former fashion model drove a tortuous route from the Central African Republic to Europe via Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Mali and Algeria. ``Stevens is the author of Night Train to Turkestan ; his offbeat African odyssey is a rollicking successor,'' asserted PW. (June)
