Summary
An Epic Adventure... A Riveting Story... With Breathtaking Photographs... A Beautiful Book... And Soon To Be A Major Motion Picture! Based on a true story, this spectacular Earthwalk book celebrates David and Phil's - the "Walkers" - incredible 14-month, 5,000-mile (8,000 km) trek by foot and paddle from Alaska to Mexico. The Walkers invite you to travel with them through North America's magnificent wild places via more than 450 superb color photos and maps, and a vivid, informative text. On their remarkable trek, the Walkers bushwhacked over backcountry trails encountering grizzly bears, glaciers, snowcapped summits, and raging rivers. Throughout their adventure, they recorded what they had experienced on film, audiotape, and in their written journals. With information about the natural environment, history, and the human spirit, Earthwalk is a provocative visual experience that invites readers to feel as if they are participating in this grand adventure right alongside the Walkers - without ever leaving home! Earthwalk's handsome package of engaging text, stunning images, and timeless human appeal make it a keepsake. Indeed, the marrying of art, nature, and adventure conveyed by Earthwalk should last readers a lifetime! Earthwalk captures a true feeling of the wonder and beauty of the great outdoors, inspiring a deep love and respect for our planet. It is a must for adventurers, nature lovers, photographic buffs, and everyone else! The Earthwalk book also features an Introduction by the legendary Orson Welles and a Foreword by noted conservationist David Brower
