Carl Hoffman (The Last Wild Men of Borneo) and Kathleen Saville (Rowing for My Life) share their tales of adventure and endurance, including examining personal motivations behind life-challenging feats and deep immersion into other cultures.
Why should you attend?
“An expertly wrought tale of exploration, adventure and mischief…. Hoffman does an excellent job entering the worlds and minds of two men who did not fit in and who carved out their own destinies…. At once cautionary and inspiring; adventure travel at its best.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“A thoughtful memoir…Experienced sailors and thrill seekers will especially enjoy the details of the ocean adventures, from being washed overboard to steering clear of dangerous reefs and navigating by the stars.” —Booklist
