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.
In Orson Welles’s own words: “Earthwalk is a bold and inspired vision, a model for the courage of the human spirit, and one of the great epic adventure stories. There is also urgency in its message that deserves a wide audience. It was my sincere pleasure and truly an honor to have participated in it.”
Earthwalk - A journey you will thoroughly enjoy!
David and Phil's journey is beyond Epic! The photography alone is worth the price of admission! I would have loved to see the images on a big screen. What an amazing adventure. Very inspiring! I loved it!
Earthwalk - A 5,000-Mile Odyssey from Alaska to Mexico
If Lewis and Clark had had the Walker Brothers with them, manifest destiny would have been accelerated by 100 years.
Not since the 1966 surfing movie, The Endless Summer, has an adventure story inspired the longing to experience nature and test ones spirit of life.
While the stories of each leg of their 5,000-mile journal of discovery in of itself are both fascinating and exciting, it is through the lenses of David and Phil Walker that the true significant of their journey unfolds. From dramatic vistas to colorful plays of light on objects that we often take for granted, the beauty of North America is revealed in a very personal and profound way. If it wasn’t for the technology of eBooks, the subtly and nuance of what the brothers felt and saw would somehow have been significantly lessened.
If you are a free spirited soul who wants to soar the highest peaks and splash in the lowest river valleys, this adventure is waiting for you.
