Camels, Skulls and Cobras: A Wild Ride Across India
Two travelers unknowingly enter a restricted area in the Thar desert of India near the India-Pakistan border. Their goal is to buy four camels. The camels they end up with include a mean-spirited step sister, a haughty dowager, a flawed beauty, and a long-suffering doofus. When word gets out that two foreigners plan to ride their camels across India, heads start shaking. It is a crazy idea. These two know little about camels, hardly speak the language, and have picked a difficult route. It only gets wilder as they learn how to apologize to a deadly cobra, discover the drawbacks of desert fame, and find out how unpredictable camels can be. There are many surprises that keep the two adventurers using their wits, whether they are figuring out how to keep water buffalo from stomping a charitable gift into the ground, trying to politely avoid shaking hands with a leper, or dealing with machine guns aimed at their heads. Their most precarious predicaments are often equally hilarious. It is a laugh out loud, white-knuckled adventure ride.
