My desert journeys have always been marked by extraordinary encounters, exciting discoveries and sometimes hard borderline experiences. None of this I will ever forget. Why do you go to the desert?, I am often asked. Attempts to explain my deeply felt love for the desert can be found in the form of books.
In the text-illustrated book “Freiheit unterm Wüstenhimmel” (Freedom under the desert sky), published by the renowned Frederking & Thaler Verlag, I present my personal desert stories to the reader.
Jerome Blösser is the desert adventurer with over 25 years of experience in the inhospitable deserts of our earth. His new text-illustrated book shows the most beautiful adventure stories from all over the world and gives you an insight into seemingly foreign cultures. The “son of the desert” drank coffee with the Inuit in Greenland, bathed in the rainwater lake in the heart of the Sahara, made countless deep friendships and immersed himself deeply in the culture of the desert peoples. In ten exciting and entertaining chapters, he takes readers to the last untouched regions of our earth.
Countries in the book: Mauritania, Greenland, Libya, China, Namibia, Oman, Bolivia, Iceland, Egypt, Iran.

In National Geographic’s new book “Abenteuer im Gepäck”, (Adventures in Luggage), border crossers and world travellers like Reinhold Messner, Hans Kammerlander and myself tell of their unusual lives.
Border crossers and globetrotters report on setting out and arriving, on insights and resistance, on encounters that can change lives.
This book is the essence of over a hundred episodes of the WELTWACH podcast by Erik Lorenz – and a cross-section of what adventure is all about.
Among other things: Reinhold Messner, Rüdiger Nehberg, Jerome Blösser, Christine Thürmer, Joey Kelly, Michael Martin, Carmen Rohrbach, Hans Kammerlander, Bruno Bauman and Dirk Rohrbach.
