The Chad Sahara is a magical land of emptiness, where man is insignificant and nature rules the rhythms of life. Timeless features of the Chad Sahara include limitless expanses of golden sand dunes, multi-coloured outcrops, spellbinding canyons, wind-eroded turrets, breathtaking arches and palm-filled oases, along with picturesque villages and prehistoric rock art. The colourful people of Chad have a unique culture crafted over centuries of isolation. Camel caravans still ply their products to lonely trade posts, while hardy herding communities eke out a basic existence, moving between temporarily fertile places.There are many surprises in this lost horizon, with towering mountain vistas and high windswept plateaux of red sandstone. Canyons and defiles have been etched by the elements over aeons into colossal blocks of inspirational designs. The peaks of the Tibesti in Chad are a strange mix; some are jagged and wild, like Tarso Tieroko and Pic Toussid�. Others barely show their presence, like Tarso Voon and the highest of all, Emi Koussi, a slumbering shallow-sloped giant set among a field of looming cones. In the east is the contorted massif of the Ennedi, separated from the Tibesti by vast plains and hidden lakes. The lakes are like mirrors, reflecting the vast open skies with a ripple of eerie dissent. The Depression du Mourdi is an explorer's last frontier, an empty quarter of wild-eyed nomads and isolated oases. Inner sanctuaries of the Chad Sahara include little-known places like the Trou du Natron and the Guelta d'Archei. The country of Chad is just one small corner of a vast desert, but for now it is the jewel in the crown, a haven for Saharan addicts. Change is coming slowly to the communities in these remote and forgotten worlds, but the country has so far kept itself insular and isolated from its troubled neighbours. It has not always been this way, so this golden age of exploring Chad may be but a brief period of calm. We do hope not.
Derick Lugo had never been hiking. He didn't even know if he liked being outside all that much. He certainly couldn't imagine going more than a day without manicuring his goatee. But with a job overseas cut short and no immediate plans, this fixture of the greater New York comedy circuit began to think about what he might do with months of free time and no commitments. He had heard of the Appalachian Trail and knew of its potential for danger and adventure, but he had never seriously considered attempting to hike all 2,192 miles of it. Then again, what could go wrong for a young black man from the city trekking solo through the East Coast backwoods? The Unlikely Thru-Hiker is the story of how an unknowing ambassador of one of the AT's least common demographics, unfamiliar with both the outdoors and thru-hiking culture, sets off with an extremely overweight pack and a willfully can-do attitude to conquer the infamous trail. What follows are eye-opening lessons on preparation, humility, race relations, and nature's wild unpredictability. But this isn't a hard-nosed memoir of discouragement or intolerance. What sets Lugo apart from the typical walk in the woods is his refusal to let any challenge squash his inner Pollyanna. Through it all, he perseveres with humor, tenacity, and an unshakeable commitment to grooming--earning him the trail name "Mr. Fabulous"--that sees him from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Katahdin in Maine.
