Spend an evening on a fast-paced romp through 19th century American history, the Ottoman Empire, Crimean War, Critical Race Theory, Manifest Destiny, slavery, the Civil War, and, of course, camels, and their legendary camel driver, Hi Jolly. Journalist/historian Steve Brown takes us back to the 1850s and spins the true story of legendary camel driver Hi Jolly and the “camel corps” of the U.S. Army during the years leading up to the Civil War and beyond, in a fast-paced tale of the Middle East and the American West.
