The Sahara Testaments was written by Nigerian poet, Tade Ipadeola. The book describes the desert’s history, the impact of climate change, personal stories and some political criticism.
Ipadeola has brought out Sahara’s true richness which, however has been distorted by horrific tragedies involving migrants who have been found dead in North Africa. The book won the Nigeria Prize for Literature for 2013 worth of 100000 dollars, the most lucrative writing award in Africa.
