Intrigued by the unexpected death of Thomas Harrell, the last and greatest of Britain's Victorian explorers, journalist Daniel Bacon attempts to retrace Harrell's journey in one of the loneliest deserts in the world.

As he journeys into the unknown - in tantalising but apparently fruitless pursuit of his hero - Bacon's view of himself and the world undergoes a sea change.
