Summary

Adam and his family live in a compound with other foreigners who work in the Middle East. He's got everything he wants, everything he needs, and there's a lot he takes for granted. Then war breaks out, and, in the confusion to escape, Adam runs away. It seems like the only thing to do, but when he finds himself alone and friendless in the desert, Adam knows he's in real danger. But then he meets Walid, the camel rider . . . An extraordinary tale of adventure, survival and friendship.
