This is the life of the nomadic Tuareg in the Sahara Desert, as seen through the eyes of Djibrilla, a Tuareg boy. Each year the Tuareg men and boys travel 600 dangerous kilometers in a camel caravan across the desert to trade goats for salt. They must take everything they need with them. At the end of each day, Djibrilla helps unload the camels, prepare the evening fire, and cook the meal. Every morning, he must gather and reload the camels.
