About this Item

112 pp, numerous b/w photographs, 1 map; endpaper maps. HARD BACK Binding in dustwrappers.Copy in mint condition. The Nairn way is the story of two pioneering New Zealanders, Norman and Gerry Nairn, who established the first cross-desert bus service between Damascus and Baghdad. After serving with the Allies during World War I in the Middle East, the Nairns decided to stay on in first Palestine and Later Lebanon, gradually building up a flourishing motor transport business, which was finally liquidated after World War II. Confronting flash floods and Druse rebels, desert temperatures and the Vichy French with the same high-spirited self-assurance, the Nairn brothers not only survived but prospered, and in the process added an important chapter to the centuries old history of desert transport.
