1st printing w/complete number sequence. Following a "Canadian-led team of international archaeologists as they sift through the Sahara," Thurston tells the story of Dakhleh, a tiny island of green within that desert, "where decades might pass between rains, and showers often evaporate before they hit the ground." Olive boards w/gilt spine lettering, 388 pages, illustrated. A very nice unread copy.
