About the Book
Join Star Wars fan Brady Walters on a cross-country trip through the North African nation of Tunisia, stopping along the way to explore the many film locations used in the saga. Through a series of stunning photographs and informative insider tips, visit the beautiful island of Djerba (site of the "Mos Eisley Cantina"), spend a night underground at "Luke Skywalker's home" in Matmata, glide across the Chott el-Jerid salt flat desert and journey to the completely in-tact city of "Mos Espa." And that's just for starters! Pack your bags, and prepare to lift-off for the real Tataouine that inspired a generation!

One-half of the travel blogging duo "Set of Drifters," author Brady Walters is also a multimedia artist. Self-taught at an early age (with a little help from his painter father), Walters cannot remember a time in his life when he was not doodling or scribbling on some random piece of paper! In 2004, Walters was afforded added exposure when seven of his paintings were published in two separate art books. This soon led to other commissioned painting and drawing opportunities for various periodicals. At present, the author is writing his first novel (a self-described "Sci-Fi soap opera"), and is busy compiling the catalogue for "PAST LIVES," Walters's multimedia project that marries together the various histories revealed in make believe "hypnotherapy regression sessions." The author lives in Santa Monica, CA with his "Set of Drifters" partner-in-crime Doug Stoddard and their korat cat "Grovey Pinesash."
