The Last Caravan

By Thurston Clarke
Putnam, 1978
286 pp. $10.95

The Sahel drought and the consequent destruction of the nomadic Tuareg way of life are graphically rendered in this moving narrative, which sets the experiences of several families against a backdrop of universal hunger and dispossession. The busy relief workers, inquisitive tourists, and indifferent governments interrupt but do not halt the drought-induced disintegration.
