From the cover: In the summer of 1955, five undergraduates, officially sponsored by the Oxford University Exploration Club, set off in a truck they named Tartarin to visit the Berber tribes in the Atlas Mountains of Southern Morocco. The party included a zoologist, a botanist, and an ethnologist, and their aim was to study the people and fauna and flora of this remote part of North Africa.

This is a light-hearted account of the expedition by its leader, who has the rare ability to tell a good story with grace and humour.
