From a glittering life running Vogue to a mud hut in Ghana, a fashion icon now offers hope to thousands of lost children. After an essay contest at 18 landed her a plum internship at Anna Wintour's British Vogue, within a year Lisa Lovatt-Smith became the youngest photo editor in the history of Conde Nast and at 21 she was tapped to head Spanish Vogue. By her mid-thirties, she had a dream career, a wardrobe to die for, and a beautiful home in Paris. But a decision to volunteer at an orphanage in Ghana changed her life- and many others forever.

Although uncertainty is intertwined with all human activity, plans, and aspirations, it is experienced differently: at times it is obsessed over and at times it is ignored. This ethnography shows how Rashaida in north-eastern Sudan deal with unknowns from day-to-day unpredictability to life-threatening dangers. It argues that the amplification of uncertainty in some cases and its extenuation in others can be better understood by focusing on forms that can either hold the world together or invite doubt.
