The life of Wilfred Thesiger has been filled with adventure and discoveries in the deserts of the Middle East. Spending his childhood in Ethiopia as the son of the American ambassador, Thesiger lived with Bedouins, exploring parts of the Arabian Desert that were unknown. He found tribes no one else had ever seen, and mapped a large region of the desolate terrain. Arabian Sands: Wilfred Thesiger, Desert Adventurer is based on his account of his journeys with Bedouin companions, where, in spite of hardships associated with life in the desert, he fulfilled his dreams and goals.
