Overview

"Do you know, Nell," said Stas Tarkowski to his friend, a little
English girl, "that yesterday the police came and arrested the wife of
Smain, the overseer, and her three children,-that Fatma who several times called at the office to see your father and mine."
And little Nell, resembling a beautiful picture, raised her greenish eyes to Stas and asked with mingled surprise and fright:
"Did they take her to prison?"
"No, but they will not let her go to the Sudân and an official has arrived who will see that she does not move a step out of Port Said."

I red this book when I was 9 years old. Now I'm 18 and I still love to read it.I read it so many times and every time I read it, I find someting new. Highly recomended.

As a child I read this book not less than 8 times and each beginning was exciting and new. It left so vivid and strong impressions in my young mind that I still have the pleasant sense of excitement only when I think of the beautiful story. It is a must for every young teenager with love for adventure and desire for exploring the wide world (in this case Africa). I definitely place 'In Desert and Wilderness' among the World Literary Treasures which every person should read at least once.
