Overcoming poverty to win camels of his own, he avenges the death of his father and wins the heart of his beloved, only to find that the solitary life of the wandering minstrel is his destiny. Written by Herbert Kaufmann, a German journalist who lived in Africa in the 1950s and '60s, Red Moon & High Summer is a fast-paced adventure story saturated in Tuareg lore.
