by Henryk Sienkiewicz(Author), Max A Drezmal(Translator) . In Desert and Wilderness, published in 1911, is a novel by Polish author Henryk Sienkiewicz, winner of the 1905 Nobel Prize in Literature. The story takes place in northeastern Africa during the 1880s. Though this book may be intended for children, in the typical fashion of a century ago it is in no way dumbed-down as is so much young adult literature published today. Even grown-ups will have trouble keeping up with the intricate political history of Egypt and the Sudan.

For Henryk Sienkiewicz, In Desert and Wilderness represented a final triumph; this was the last novel he would complete. Overall, In Desert and Wilderness is a great read. The reader will find him/herself immersed in the story.

France Vodnik (Translator). Nikolaj Omersa (Illustrator). For Henryk Sienkiewicz, In Desert and Wilderness represented a final triumph; this was the last novel he would complete. Sienkiewicz, who had visited Africa in 1891, successfully recreates in the book the beauty he encountered amid the continent's entrancing landscape. Written over eighty years ago for a younger audience, but appealing to all ages, In Desert and Wilderness remains a literary treasure in Poland. This is writing that definitely moves the reader into another world.

I read this book as a child of about 11 in the original Polish version. It was written about 100 years ago by a Nobel prize-winning Polish author (Quo Vadis). This is the only book for children he ever wrote, he specialised in historical books which delved deeply into politics.
This book is a more light-hearted adventure and deals with two children, a Polish boy of 14 and a British girl of 8, who find themselves travelling through turn-of-the-century Africa. The Children, initially kidnapped from Egypt for ransom, flee from their attackers by going southwards through unexplored and wild regions. It is a very exciting and dramatic book, and the setting is historically accurate, although not always PC to contemporary sensibilities,

Wonderful book for boys, especially in these emasculated times! Greatly enjoyed this read, despite its target of a younger audience.

It's been a while since I've read this book in Polish, wanted to see how it reads in English. Fantastic! Thank you for bringing back childhood nostalgia.

Am not a good reader and often do not try unheard off authors. Or rather authors I don't know. I started this one with skepticism and been delighted since. Thank Henryk for your insight on the wilderness. It's soo convincing I believe all the different descriptions you gave of the places. I recommend this well written novel to all readers. Thanks again Henryk.

Sienkiewicz is a very good novelist and also this example of his writing for young readers doesn't disappoint.
I am waiting for my 12 year old grandson's opinion about the novel. I first read it at his age in the original Polish in Poland before WW II.
