About the author
Earthwalk is the tale of a bold journey and the two young men who took it. Based on a true story, it chronicles the daring, personal adventure of David and Phil, the Walker Brothers’ extraordinary 5,000-mile (8,000 km) odyssey from Alaska, to Mexico. Equipped with only the bare essentials plus two 35mm cameras with an assortment of lenses, the Walkers set out from Anchorage, Alaska to see for themselves some of the unspoiled wilderness areas that remain along the western portion of North America. Fourteen months later, they had traveled more than 5,000 miles (8,000 km) by foot and canoe to the Mexican border. On their remarkable trek, the Walkers encountered grizzly bears, glaciers, snowcapped summits, and raging rivers. They swam in near-freezing streams, trudged through waist-high snowbanks, scaled mountain peaks, and bushwhacked over backcountry trails. Throughout their adventure, they recorded what they had experienced on film, audiotape, and in their written journals. Earthwalk tells the story of this incredible undertaking in terms of endurance, appreciation, enrichment, and preservation. It is a compelling wilderness odyssey documented by two devoted explorers. If artists are individuals who can fill the hearts and minds of others with the emotions and feelings nature leaves with them, then the Walkers are artists of the purest form. They give to the spectator of their "Earthart" a true feeling of wonder and beauty that the Walkers felt during their trek. The boldness of their adventure is as appealing as their obvious rapport with Earth itself. With information about the natural environment, history, and the human spirit, Earthwalk is a provocative visual experience that invites readers to feel as if they are participating in this grand adventure right alongside the Walkers–without ever leaving home!
