Tenere means: Desert
(in the Tuareg language)
The title and character in this book is inspired from a true story about a tree in the Sahara Desert known as The Tree of Tenere.The Tree of Tenere is deeply rooted in the history and culture of the Tuareg people of the Sahara Desert. This solitary acacia tree stood tall and proud in the harsh desert environment and was considered a symbol of resilience and strength by the people of the region. The Tree of Tenere was not just any ordinary tree; it was a sacred site that was a gathering place for traditional ceremonies. The Tuareg people regarded it with awe and reverence, and it was seen as a source of inspiration and wonder. Its ability to tap into deep underground water sources, allowing it to survive in the desert, was seen as a testament to the power of nature and the human spirit.
Tenere met its end in 1973
Unfortunately, the Tree of Tenere met its end in 1973 when it was knocked down by a truck. However, its legacy lives on, as its trunk now rests in peace at the National Museum in Niamey, Niger, where visitors can pay homage to this incredible tree and its enduring story.The Tree of Tenere is a symbol of resilience and strength that will continue to inspire generations to come. It serves as a reminder that anything is possible if we have the determination and spirit to succeed. The Tree of Tenere will always be remembered as a true sentinel of the Sahara Desert.
