About the Author

C.M. Rhodes was born in Yale, Oklahoma in 1920. He attended Murray State College, Abilene Christian College and Freed-Hardeman College, and then completed resident work or extension courses at the University of Alabama, Alabama Christian College and the University of Milan (Italy). Mr. Rhodes served in the Air Corps as a flight officer and a glider pilot with the 82nd Airborne, 1st Troop Carrier Command. For thirteen years, the author of Remembering Libya and the Sahara served as minister of the Selma, Alabama Church of Christ, and for four years as a missionary in North Africa. It was during this period that he became keenly interested in the civil rights movement and the threat of communism. Extensive studies of these issues led Mr. Rhodes to the lecture circuit where he spoke to civic assemblies, ministerial associations, churches, schools and colleges throughout the South and in California. While living in North Africa, Mr. Rhodes accepted an offer to travel by jeep across the Sahara Desert as the guest of Somalia’s Vice General. The diary Mr. Rhodes kept of that adventure became his memoir, Remembering Libya and the Sahara. After a twenty-seven year career in business, Mr. Rhodes retired but remains active teaching Bible classes, reading voraciously, and researching a variety of subjects.

Format: Paperback
I read this book recently at the same time as the last areas held by Gaddafi fell to the Libyan rebel forces. How informative to follow the map points of Misrata, Murzuq, Tripoli on the journey of another time as these more recent events unfolded. Seeing this part of the world through the eyes of an American living in Libya gave me a larger view and a desire to see at least some part of the fascinating Sahara.

The author/narrator gives an excellent portrayal of his journey through the Sahara Desert, his life in Tripoli, Libya; where he moved his family from the United States to live in Libya for four years... What happened during his journey through the desert? Who was Dr. Gualtiero? What were the encounters he had during his time in Libya?

I could have read this book in a day, however; I kept re-reading chapters over and over. I felt like I was right there in the desert with C. M. Rhodes. I was astonished by the attention to detail, and enjoyed every moment as I lived vicariously through yet another amazing chapter after chapter.

The wonderful photos that were taken during the journey of the Pigmy people, he was a brave man because some of the photos were scary, others were just lovely with the "Kids being kids on the shore of the Ubangi River"

This book is an enlightening read, the author documented his journey day by day, it's filled with factual details, humor and of course really interesting bits and pieces, living amongst people of different cultures and adaptations to their customs, there were a number of events during their trek (nearly dying most dramatic) that keep me coming back. I'm certainly glad I read this book.

I read this book and it is wonderful! It took me on a trip through a strange land a long time ago. I found myself wondering over and over again what it must have been like to actually be there, and jealous that I wasn't! The writing is very personal and engaging, and it was a great fun read. I highly recommend!

What a wonderful surprise to read a background compiled by a daughter from her father's notes. A good evening read. It moves right along. The pictures were particularly interesting.
