“To have followed a dream and seen it become a reality, to have achieved more than I knew I had in me has meant more to me than the comfort and security of a conventional life.”
Robin Hanbury-Tenison’s life has been one of extremes. From the peace of his Cornish farm, he has ventured out again and again into some of the most remote and dangerous regions on earth. Recounted in his best-selling books, his adventures in the deserts and jungles of Africa, South America and the Far East are exciting, hair-raising and sometimes hilarious.
But in addition to his intrepid adventures, Robin’s affinity with, and concern for, threatened tribal peoples led him to help found Survival International — and it is this intensifying battle to preserve the quality of life under threat from developers and machines that infuses his autobiography with a passion and conviction that makes it impossible to put down.
Named by the Sunday Times in 1982 as “the greatest explorer of the past 20 years”, Robin has been on over 24 expeditions, including as leader of the Royal Geographical Society’s largest expedition, taking 140 scientists to study the rainforests of Sarawak.
He is a Gold Medallist of the Royal Geographical Society and an International Fellow of the Explorers Club.
