Between Sea and Sahara
An Orientalist AdventureeBook - 2004
Between Sea and Sahara is one of the great classics of travel-writing about the Middle East. Fromentin's masterpiece is a symbol of nineteenth century Europe's fascination with the Orient and a tale of passion and adventure set in Algeria in the third decade of French colonization. This is a compelling eyewitness account of the country and its people, questioning France's--and his own--presence there. In his desire to capture the essence of this world on paper as well as canvas, Fromentin reveals much about the roots of this colonial relationship, the repercussions of which can still be felt today.
