    Read long ago, but I recall this as a great story I do see I marked it up a bunch, and have to say I love this excerpt from Asher as one of the all time great descriptions of the love between a couple, especially a couple facing great danger and adventure together The man told us, From here to Wadi Howar you won t see anyone No one at...
