Bookfilter: cult of the super mechanics
May 30, 2010 3:41 AM Subscribe
Help me identify this book or short story: A man accidentally creates a cult of super-mechanics when he recruits a native tribe to help him fix his plane. They mix religion and an obsession with mechanical detail. I might have seen this on MeFi, but I can't find it.

I'm thinking maybe it was in the Sahara, or on the Arabian peninsula, but I'm not sure.
