In The Immeasurable World, over the course of eight journeys to deserts, Atkins enters a landscape that he discovers is as much internal as physical. From the monasteries of Egypt - where he enters into the extreme privations of the Desert Father - to America's Black Rock Desert, and via Oman, Australia, and Central Asia, he investigates the fascinating life, history, and iconography of these untamed places. 'In sublime prose that veers from startling human and natural history to dreamlike personal experience, The Immeasurable World brings apparently barren places to life in a brilliant, revelatory narrative’ Philip Hoare.
