Product description

Synopsis

This book gives a short glimpse into the author's colourful and adventurous life and beautifully describes his unusual journeys to remote and fascinating cultures. His reports are varied in character. Some are very dramatic, such as when he falls through the ice in Lake Baikal in Siberia, is attacked by a pack of dogs in Vanuatu in the Pacific, or is trapped on top of a derailed train in the Congolese jungle. Others are more descriptive and lyrical, for example when he travels up the Amazon River, climbs sacred Mount Emei in western China, or sails down the Niger River to Timbucktu in Mali. He paints captivating pictures of the landscapes and the people he encounters, into by describing context while at the same time he puts them the history of the civilizations he meets. As a result, he lures the reader into a sensory - but always realistic - world of foreign sights, sounds and smells. His journeys reflect his desire, both in his life and his travels, to take risks, explore his limits, and go 'beyond'.
