He survived a terrifying crocodile attack off Australia's Queensland coast, blood poisoning in the middle of the Pacific, malaria in Indonesia and China, and acute mountain sickness in the Himalayas. He was hit by a car and left for dead with two broken legs in Colorado, and incarcerated for espionage on the Sudan-Egypt border. The first in a thrilling adventure trilogy, 'Dark Waters' charts one of the longest, most gruelling, yet uplifting and at times irreverently funny journeys in history, circling the world using just the power of the human body. But it was more than just a physical challenge. Prompted by what scientists have dubbed the 'perfect storm' as the global population soars to 8.3 billion by 2030, adventurer Jason Lewis used the expedition to reach out to thousands of children, calling attention to our interconnectedness and shared responsibility of an inhabitable Earth for future generations.
