I took this book away with me, not knowing what to expect but having an interest in undiscovered mysteries. So glad I chose this one, as found it not only interesing but humourous in parts. Typically the kind of book where you can't wait to see what happens on the next page. Definately worth a read!

There are too many armchair `experts' in cryptozoology. People who never leave the comfort of their armchairs and pronounce to the world what can and can't exist without ever going to look for themselves. I recall a few years back when Jon Downes said that there couldn't possibly be a population of bigfoot type creatures living in the UK, he was met with an avalanche of vitriol form people who had never even been to England, berating him on daring to suggest that there were no bigfoots living just outside of Newcastle!
Then there are the real cryptozoologists. People who risk life and limb to hunt unknown animals at their own expense at the ends of the earth. I am one of this rare breed and my good friend Adam Davies is another. Adam and I have know each other and followed each other's expeditions for years but it was only in 2008 that we finally went on an adventure together, hunting relic hominids ion Russia.

Extreme Expeditions is Adams first book and chronicles his expeditions from 1998 up to 2007. Adam don't just talk the talk, he walks the walk financing many expeditions by the sweat from his brow and often going it alone into dangerous places.
Here we follow him to the war torn Congo in search of Mokele-Mbembe and braving mad machete wielding crowds. He trecks through Sumatra after the Orang-Pendek regardless of earthquakes and crosses the Gobi on the track of the Mongolian Deathworm. Perhaps the finest chapter is Adams trip to Norway were, in Lake Seljord were he encounters a serpentine monster.
The book is not an in depth examination of cryptids but an exciting and highly personal travelogue. My only criticism was that it wasn't long enough.

The book has a varied and intrigueing insite into aspects of the natural world that remain a mystery and at the same time facts that have foundation and some evidence in support of a further expedition is warranted to seek these elusive creatures.
It was also a good book as written in the first person,and therefore a number of amusing incidents portraid as well as the more serious side.
I would recommend this book to be on everyones bookshelf
A well good read and extremely interesting.

Started reading this book but then couldn't put it down .......let's you get right into the head of the Explorer and expert British Tracker Adam Davies. Adam explores his motivations for becoming an explorer and reminds us that any one of us can follow our dreams.

The logistics of planning an expedition are explored, as well as the bigger issue of making it it all work once it has started. Adam states that his intention is not to go into any great detail about the animals themselves although there is enough to wet people's appetites.

It was both exciting and hilarious (!!).........Adam is a great observer of life and people....if I was only allowed 10 books on a desert island, well this would be one of them....

Think this book will appeal to a wide audience....Fortean Times Readers, travellers, trekkers, those with an interest in Natural history, people watchers, anybody who wants to follow a dream but needs that bit of extra motivation.....in fact think would be enjoyed by most people.

Like "An Idiot Abroad" but without Ricky Gervais and the might of Sky TV behind him, Adam is just a regular guy curious to find out if any of these creatures actually exist. This is an account of the adventures and difficulties he encountered whilst searching, with a healthy amount of scepticism, for creatures that people either outrightly dismiss as bunk, or are adamant they have encountered them. Nothing appears to be left out - there is no subtle editing of events to give a favourable view of Adam and his findings. So if you really want to find out what it is like to be in the jungle, with no way to call "Get me out of here!", or you are considering planning such a trip yourself, this is the book for you.

I really enjoyed this book. I'd seen Adam Davies in several cryptozoology documentaries and was impressed by his professionalism and assumed he does this kind of thing full-time. It's amazing and inspiring to read that he was just an ordinary guy with normal job who has made it go right to do this in his spare time.

There are a lot of funny stories and great humor in there but maybe you wouldn't get it if you're not British.
