Truth About the Desert. .
The French, who have been the
greatest explorers of the desert, have
corrected many false Ideas about the
desert. The most conspicuous . and
jersl.stent of these errors has been
the notion that the desert Is a vast
area of sand. The French : have
proved that this Is not so. In fact
onlr about a fifth of the Sahara Is
covered with sand.
The greatest desert !n the world Is
about as large as the United States
end Alaska together. The sand areas
In the desert are somewhat larger
