Overview

Into a Desert Place: A 3000 Mile Walk around the Coast of Baja California by Graham MacKintosh

"I had never been particularly good at anything except catering to my own comfort and safety," begins Graham Mackintosh with cheerful frankness in this engaging, suspenseful, and finally stirring travel adventure.
An Englishman, Mackintosh fell in love with Baja California on a visit and, despite a glaring shortage of both experience and money, determined to walk its entire coast. Into a Desert Place is his account of how he equipped himself, what he saw and learned, and how he survived on this harsh and beautiful journey. The book was first published in England and then by Mackintosh himself in the United States; this is its first appearance in paperback.

As a lover of chronicles of human-powered journeys and adventures, a la Bill Bryson, Barbara Savage, David Wallace, Edward Abbey, etc., I found this book among the most enjoyable I've read. Humorous, honest, dramatic, well-written.
