“A Fool in the Desert,” by Barbara Toy. 180 pp. (John Murray, 50, Albemarle Street, London, W.1. 18s.)
This is Barbara Toy’s sequel to her excellent travel story” A Fool on Wheels.” This time we meet her Land-Rover, now equipped with a closed station-wagon body, on an adventurous journey into Libya where, driving mostly alone, Miss Toy tries to probe the eternal mystery of the desert.
This is a well-written, sincere and thoroughly enjoyable book, difficult to put down.—W. B.
