9781587761577: The Tuareg: Blue Man of the Sahara

Cultures clash when a young Virginia plantation belle is loved by a dashing aristocratic Frenchman and his nearly exact oposite, a mysterious, noble but rough-edged Tuareg chieftain of the desert. This masterfully told story takes place in exotic and diverse locals such as London; the tents of nomadic tribes; the decadent, intrigue-filled Turkish kasbah at Algiers, and the beauitiful but cruel desert called Sahara.

About the Author:

Brooklyn-born George DiGuido attributes his interest in and love of Saharan culture to his WWII stint in Morocco. Prior to that the only sand he ever saw was the beach at Coney Island. Subsequent treks to Morocco and Tunisia strengthened his love of things African, and inspired the writing of The Tuareg. Postwar, DiGuido enjoyed a long and successful career in New York, Detroit,and Chicago advertising agencies. His expertise as an Art Director for print and television advertising on major accounts charges his novel s every scene with a highly cinematic quality. The author lives in a Chicago suburb with his wife, two adopted daughters from Poland, and his overly-affectionate Wheaten terrier, Kelly.

Review:

"4/5 - Outstanding Great Read...it is certainly worth reading. You'll enjoy this book very much. This book should be at the top of your list." --Kimberly, Coffee Time Romance

"Captivating! THE TUAREG abounds with adventure, resonates with culture clashes, and pulsates with love." (Rating 5 out of 5) --Camellia, The Long and Short of It

"This novel will delight a broad spectrum of readers: historians, ethnographists, geographers, political scientists, adventure-lovers and hardcore romantics. In short, the novel has the fascination of "The Sheik" and the intellectual depth and scope of "Lawrence of Arabia." Get this book and put on your nightstand, but don t expect to get much sleep." --Dr. Thomas Wolfram, Ph.D. (retired), Department of Physics and Astronomy at University of Missouri-Columbia

The 'noble' savage may be less savage than the people calling him that. "The Taureg: Blue Man of the Sahara" is a piece of Historical fiction following a Virginian woman and a French aristocrat as they find themselves in the desert meeting with the Taureg of the Desert, who are commonly referred to as the 'blue men'. An entertaining and intriguing piece of historical fiction outlining a lesser known early nineteenth century tribe, "The Taureg" is a top pick for fiction collections. --MidWest Book Review

"Captivating! THE TUAREG abounds with adventure, resonates with culture clashes, and pulsates with love." (Rating 5 out of 5) --Camellia, The Long and Short of It
