About the Author:

Born in 1961, Frank Gardner is the BBC's Security Correspondent, reporting for television and radio on issues of domestic and international security, notably on Islamist extremist related terrorism. A fluent Arabist, with a degree in Arabic and Islamic Studies, he was previously the BBC's Middle East Correspondent based in Cairo, and before that in Dubai. In June 2004, while reporting in Riyadh, Frank and his cameraman, Simon Cumbers, were ambushed by Islamist gunmen. Simon was killed outright, Frank was shot multiple times and left for dead. Against all expectations, he survived and, in 2006, published his acclaimed and bestselling memoir, Blood and Sand. In 2009 he published Far Horizons, a much praised account of his life as an inveterate traveller and explorer. He has written for the Economist, Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph and Time Out and has been published in The Best of Sunday Times Travel Writing. Awarded an OBE in 2005 for services to journalism, Frank Gardner was profiled in the BBC's television series, Who Do You Think You Are? in September 2015. Frank lives in London with his family.

Review:

"Gardner is a good storyteller...an acute observer, a culturally sensitive interlocutor and a genuinely open-minded traveller...his stories are always revealing, often riotous and sometimes moving" * TIME OUT 'Book of the Week' * "A bold, life-affirming read" * GQ * "An inspiration...to its readers, able-bodied and disabled alike" * OBSERVER * "His adventures fly off the page in an entertaining and often charmingly self-deprecating manner" * NEWS OF THE WORLD * "His terrific new book...absorbing, amusing... some hair-raisingly brave travelling" * SCOTSMAN magazine *

Book Description Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Lost on a remote Sumatran volcano.pursued through a Tokyo backstreet by a Japanese gangster.picnicking with the French Foreign Legion in the Horn of Africa: Frank Gardner s idea of a holiday is not everyone s. But ever since his student days, the BBC security correspondent has done some epicly hard travelling in a remarkable number of countries. Drawing on the diaries, sketches and photos he kept during his travels, his immaculately observed accounts of these often strange, sometimes daring, adventures form the backbone of his new book. In June 2004, while on what should have been a routine assignment in Riyadh, his life - never mind his ability to travel the world - was nearly brought to a violent end by Islamist gunmen. Frank survived against all the odds and through force of will, has found himself looking towards far horizons once more. He s not only been skiing in the Alps, scuba diving in the Red Sea and explored the jungles of Cambodia, he is also reporting once more from far-flung destinations like Afghanistan and Colombia - and this is a man who no longer has the use of his legs. This is Frank Gardner s compelling, personal account of the myriad adventures that made him the man he was on that fateful day - and of the journeys he s made since, and how they ve helped him to become the remarkable and inspiring individual he is today.
