9780753515648: Walking the Amazon: 860 Days. The Impossible Task. The Incredible Journey

From the star of Discovery Channel's Naked and Marooned comes a a riveting, adventurous account of one man’s history-making journey along the entire length of the Amazon and through the most bio-diverse habitat on Earth.  Fans of Turn Right at Machu Piccu and readers of Jon Krakauer and Bill Bryson and will revel in Ed Stafford's extraordinary prose and lush descriptions. 

In April 2008, Ed Stafford set off to become the first man ever to walk the entire length of the Amazon. He started on the Pacific coast of Peru, crossed the Andes Mountain range to find the official source of the river. His journey lead on through parts of Colombia and right across Brazil; all while outwitting dangerous animals, machete wielding indigenous people as well as negotiating injuries, weather and his own fears and doubts. Yet, Stafford was undeterred. On his grueling 860-day, 4,000-plus mile journey, Stafford witnessed the devastation of deforestation firsthand, the pressure on tribes due to loss of habitats as well as nature in its true-raw form. Jaw-dropping from start to finish, Walking the Amazon is the unforgettable and gripping story of an unprecedented adventure.

Walking the Amazon is also available as a Spanish edition entitled Caminado El Amazonas.

Review:

"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

Descripción Ebury Publishing, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In April 2008, Ed Stafford began his attempt to become the first man ever to walk the entire length of the River Amazon. Nearly two and a half years later, he had crossed the whole of South America to reach the mouth of the colossal river. With danger a constant companion - outwitting alligators, jaguars, pit vipers and electric eels, not to mention overcoming the hurdles of injuries and relentless tropical storms - Ed s journey demanded extreme physical and mental strength. 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 the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest 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.
