Synopsis: ''The short life of William Henry Shakespear-one of the most intrepid and accomplished lone explorers that Britain produced in the heyday of her empire-is today a legend among the tribesmen of Central Arabia. Eighty years after his death, Captain Shakespear's name and deeds are virtually unknown to his fellow countrymen and his memory is lost even to his closest surviving relatives. ''
