The Sahara is the biggest desert on earth. It takes its name from the Arab word for "emptiness". In the dead heart of that emptiness there's a place called the Tenere. The Tenere takes its name from the Tuareg word for "nothing". A nothing the size of France in the middle of an emptiness the size of the United States. It's no wonder the locals call this place "The Land Of Fear”. David Adams retraces the trade routes of the people who call this stove-hot corner of the planet home.

TRACKS publishes unique, unexpected and untold stories from across the world every week.

When he said 'we are at the dawn of new millennia' I realised it must be shot atleast at 1999.

The best documentary I have ever seen on human lives, region so isolated and harsh. We need to learn to adapt difficult situation and being patient in our daily lives.

This documentary was shot in 1999. How perfectly was it shot, even though it’s over 20 years old!
