In the Heart of the Desert is the story of D.M. (Mike) Morton, an exploration geologist who explored the remoter parts of the Middle East between 1945 and 1984. It covers events in Palestine, Iraq, Qatar, the UAE, Oman and Yemen, as well as providing an exciting glimpse of the trials and tribulations of oil exploration. The author, Mike's second son, describes an extraordinary world and a rich parade of characters: autonomous sheikhs and their fiercely independent tribes, nomadic bedouins, colourful expatriates and a group of intrepid geologists driven by an oil company's search for oil. This is a detailed and thoroughly researched account of his father's life and culminates in the story of his own journey to southern Arabia and a poignant meeting of the present with the past.
