Roof of Africa, by John Warburton-Lee (used, hardcover)
This is the story of the Welsh Guards' journey across Africa. Their guiding principle was to avoid centres of civilisation and face any challenge that came their way. With groups of men and women who where mostly novices, they covered 40,000 miles of extreme conditions. John Warbuton-Lee first dreamt up the idea of his trip whilst lying in hospital after breaking his back in a rock-climbing accident. It became a personal goal for him not only to walk again, but to lead an expedition that would be a true adventure in the old-fashioned sense. On the trip he was also able to help Weston Spirit, the charity set up by ex-Welsh Guardsman and Falklands casualty Simon Weston.
