True stories of wild places and extreme endeavors from the magazine that invented adventure writing as we know it. Ian Frazier goes to the woodsto do nothing; Mark Jenkins wrestles with adventure mortality; Bill Vaughn skates home backward; Paul Theroux reveals the allure of islands; Alison Wright recalls her near-death experience in deepest Laos; Peter Maass endures free-fire zones in Sudan and Somalia; Kate Wheeler braves an ancient, violent-unto-death Bolivian ritual; Bill McKibben predicts the end of the world's fisheries; Mark Hertsgaard bicycles to the source of the Nile; David Rakoff survives survival school; David Quammen tracks large mammals in Romania. Here the editors of Outside bring together over thirty essays that comprise some of the finest nonfiction writing gathered anywhere, writing that takes us to remote corners of the world and into distant realms of the imagination. By turns comical and sobering, whimsical and nerve-racking, the stories in this collection embody Outside's ability to hone the cutting edge, publishing the innovative, exhilarating, zany, wise voices of adventure.
