Walking the Amazon (Virgin Books Business & Dezvoltare personală)

De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – June 2012
Often warned by natives that he would die, Ed even found himself pursued by machete-wielding tribesmen and detained for murder. However, Ed's journey was an adventure with a purpose: to help raise people's awareness of environmental issues. Ed had unprecedented access to indigenous communities and witnessed the devastating effects of deforestation first-hand. His story of disappearing tribes and loss of habitats concerns us all. Ultimately though, "Walking the Amazon" is an account of a world-first expedition that takes readers on the most daring journey along the world's greatest river and through the most bio-diverse habitat on earth.

Recenzii

"One of the boldest modern-day adventures ever taken." -Bear Gryllis, host of Discovery Channel's Man Vs. Wild

“[Walking the Amazon] stands elbow-to-elbow with adventure classics from Thesiger to Krakauer.” -Mark Adams, author of Turn Right at Machu Picchu

"All generations need heroes; it's lovely to have a real one for a change." -The Times (London)

“Totally, completely and utterly mad.”  - Michael Palin, author and actor

"Vicariously joining this 860-day trek through extremely inhospitable terrain—made all the more challenging by hostile tribes, lethal animals, food scarcities, and extreme weather—has made for an exhilarating adventure."
-National Geographic

Prior to this journey, Ed was in production with the BBC on its conversation series Lost Land of the Jaguar. In August 2010, he became the first man to walk the length of the Amazon River, accompanied by forestry worker Gadiel “Cho” Sanchez Rivera, for all but four months of the twenty-eight-month journey. Ed is planning future projects and he travels the world speaking about his adventures. To follow Ed, visit his website: edstafford.org.
