Author and explorer James Dorsey has spent two decades visiting the world's most remote tribal cultures. In Baboons for Lunch and Other Sordid Adventures, he tells his remarkable travel stories in rollicking accounts that keep readers off balance and eager for more.
Many more stories are funny, others are poignant, and quite a few are heart-stopping, while others are unique insights into remote ways of life most of the world does not know exists.

In this book, the reader will climb a remote volcano in Ethiopia, cross the Sahara Desert with nomads, undergo a tribal exorcism, and visit shamans, healers, witch doctors, and holy men. This is not your average travel book, but an entree to some of the world's remote corners and people.

James Dorsey is an award-winning author and explorer who has traveled to 48 countries to visit remote cultures before they vanish. He has written for Lonely Planet, BBC Travel, BBC Wildlife, and Geographic Expeditions among others. He writes for numerous African magazines and is a travel consultant to Brown & Hudson of London and correspondent for Camerapix International of Nairobi. He is the author of Vanishing Tales from Ancient Trails, and his stories have appeared in 18 anthologies, including The Best Travel Writing volumes 10 and 11, plus the 2016 Lonely Planet Travel Anthology. He has won numerous awards and is a fellow of the Explorers Club and former director of the Adventurers Club.
