Definition
North African desert that is the largest in the world (3.5 million square miles - 7 times larger than the next largest desert and almost as large as the entire USA).
  • There it lay stretching out into one interminable line of dust and sand, with its sides bordered by tall, meagre trees, altogether presenting so uninviting an appearance, that no one in his senses could have imagined that any traveller, at liberty to regulate his hours for journeying, would choose to expose himself in such a formidable Sahara.
