Overview

The Risk in Being Alive: One Man's Adventure across the Planet by Brian Hancock

Diving off a Jamaican waterfall, evading a charging black rhino in the veldt, running naked through the streets of South Africa, nearly drowning off the coast of Brazil-such adventures and many more are recounted in this personal collection of travel essays about one man's journey following the cardinal winds. Infused with a dry sense of humor and an observant sense of place, these stories cascade in a torrent of thrilling events and breathtaking wonder.

Author Biography: Brian Hancock is an expert in sails, sailmaking, and offshore ocean racing. He is a regular feature writer for Sailing, Blue Water Sailor, and Yachting World magazines. He lives in Marblehead, Massachusetts.
