Surviving Extremes: Ice, Jungle, Sand and Swamp, by Nick Middleton
Nick Middleton returns to pit himself against the four most extreme environments on the planet in this paperback edition of the successful Surviving Extremes. The intrepid Oxford don, explorer and author of Going to Extremes is back, and he's set himself a challenge to cope with the worst that nature can throw at him in Surviving Extremes. Travelling to four of the most extreme natural environments: swamps, deserts, jungles and arctic wastelands, the question is, can he pick up enough tips from the indigenous people to hack it at the very edge of human existence, or will his mid latitude sensibilities forever let him down? This is Nick's account of how he had to put his body and mind to the test in a unique survival experiment. - The hardcover edition of the book, and its predecessor, Going to Exremes have currently sold over 20,000 copies.
