Synopses & Reviews
Outdoor adventure has inspired some of the most exciting literary nonfiction of recent years, and Explore has published exemplary models of the genre: Ian Brown on backcountry bonding in the Rockies, Adam Killick on surviving a hurricane at sea, and J. B. MacKinnon on overlanding in a war zone. Personal essays convey the taste of wild eel and the chill of a cotton tent at -28C; cautionary tales describe the death of glaciers and the deviant lifestyles of Atlantic salmon. These incredible stories of the great outdoors entertain, inform, and amaze.
