Publisher Description

A major Channel 4 series and a Sunday Times bestseller

His journey is 4,250 miles long.
He is walking every step of the way, camping in the wild, foraging for food, fending for himself against multiple dangers.
He is passing through rainforest, savannah, swamp, desert and lush delta oasis.
He will cross seven, very different countries.
No one has ever made this journey on foot.

In this detailed, thoughtful, inspiring and dramatic book, recounting Levison Wood's walk the length of the Nile, he will uncover the history of the Nile, yet through the people he meets and who will help him with his journey, he will come face-to-face with the great story of a modern Africa emerging out of the past.

Exploration and Africa are two of his great passions - they motivate his inquisitiveness and resolution not to fail, yet the challenges of the terrain, the climate, the animals, the people and his own psychological resolution will throw at him are immense.

The dangers are very real, but so is the motivation for this ex-army officer. If he can overcome the mental and physical challenges, he will be walking into history...

A brilliant adventure

I really enjoyed reading this compelling book. It was a combination of pure adventure and travelogue. I felt like I was there at times braving the challenges of the desert and jungle.

Wow! Levison, what a story and an adventure, I admire your courage, passion and determination. The story is educational, inspiring and wonderfully told. If like me you enjoyed the TV series then you will love the extra detail of reading the book.
