The story of an extraordinary expedition to the Yemen. Of the six members only one was to return to Denmark a forgotten man, all the unread diaries, notebooks and sketches were consigned to the Copenhagen Museum. Carsten Niebuhr's own dry account of the expedition appeared in 1772. Hansen with the help of the unused and for the most part overlooked material from the journey, fleshes out a fascinating story.
