About the Book
A Journey from the Desert is an inspiring and real story about a ten-year-old boy who crossed the massive and dense sand dunes in a vast desert by foot and camel ride in 1930. The weather was painfully hot 120 degrees. He traveled for almost a month in search of a livelihood in a promised land. He faced a lot of hardships traveling through the desert at this tender age.
Though completely illiterate and uneducated, fifty years later he motivated his son to travel to another promised land half the world away. He sacrificed his whole life for the benefit of others and ignored himself completely.
