Summary

Ed Stafford - adventurer extraordinaire and Guinness World Record holder for walking the length of the Amazon River - likes a challenge. Casting about for an adventure that would top the extraordinary feat he recounts in Walking the Amazon, Stafford decides to maroon himself on an uninhabited island in the South Pacific. His mission: to survive for 60 days equipped with nothing - no food, water, or even clothing - except the video cameras he would use to document his time. Detailing Stafford's jaw-dropping sojourn on the island of Olourua, Naked and Marooned is a tale of unparalleled adventure and of one man's will to push himself to the outer limits-and survive.

Walking the Amazon

Summary

Ed Stafford havde sat et år af til at gå hele vejen langs Amazonfloden fra dens udspring i Peru til Atlanterhavets kyst - som det første menneske nogensinde. Det kom til at tage meget længere - 860 dage, for at være helt præcis, ikke underligt med alle de vanvittige ting, han kom ud for undervejs: Han blev anklaget for mord, truet på livet, blev jagtet af stammefolk med macheter og var øjenvidne til den brutale skovrydning, der truer Amazonas. Ed Stafford (f. 1975) er en engelsk opdagelsesrejsende, der er den første person, der har gået hele vejen langs Amazonfloden. Han har sidenhen udgivet en bog om sit eventyr og står bag en række dokumentarprogrammer om sin færd, der blandt andet er blevet vist på Discovery Channel og DR 2.
