“A journey of great courage and determination.” –His Holiness The Dalai Lama
“Two broken legs would be a trip ender for me… An incredible amount of stamina.” –Jay Leno, The Tonight Show
“An adventure of two lifetimes…” –The San Francisco Chronicle
“A breath-taking contribution to the literature of exploration. The author writes compellingly, with a great depth of emotional engagement and leaves the reader with a ferocious appetite for the rest of the of log of this amazing journey” –The Independent Book Publishing Association’s Benjamin Franklin Awards
With an award-winning first installment, The Expedition chronicles in three parts Lewis’s 46,505-mile journey across five continents, two oceans, and one sea using only the power of his body: walking, cycling, and inline skating the landmasses, and kayaking, rowing, swimming, and pedaling a boat across the oceans—with no assistance from motors or the wind.
Lewis set four world records, and clinched what the London Sunday Times hailed as “The last great first for circumnavigation.”
But it was more than just a physical challenge. Prompted by what scientists dubbed the “perfect storm” as the global population soars to 8.3 billion by 2030, adventurer Jason Lewis used the expedition to reach out to thousands of classrooms around the world, calling attention to our interconnectedness and shared responsibility of an inhabitable Earth for future generations, while raising thousands of dollars for orphaned children along the way.
