72-yr-old abba alhadi is a hero. an illiterate caretaker of ancient manuscripts in the beleaguered city of timbuktu, mali, he managed to secretly transport nearly 30k texts dating back to the 13th century before al qaida extremists set fire to the library/research center that had housed them. an irreplaceable treasure trove of history preserved! we are all richer for alhadi and his co-conspirators.
