A gripping memoir of the 1974 humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia, Dust of the Danakil is a true story of an ill-conceived project in the violent, drought-stricken Danakil region. The author, sent by UK government pen-pushers to harness seasonal flood water and turn the notoriously aggressive Afar herdsmen into farmers, discovered a hostile environment that almost cost him him his life.
