The Deep Sand of Damaraland tells of drilling for water in a stunning land, and the irony of trying to battle against drought in a desert. This is where the Wild West meets Africa - where trackers hunt criminals, farmers feud neighbors, rogue elephants pull apart water tanks, and one contractor rides horseback to the bush to lasso giraffes. In a paradoxical land where African and European lifestyles coexist and clash, and where intuition eclipses logic - the key to sanity and success pivots on getting to know the local people.
