Truth is stranger than legend . . . and your journey into both begins here.
World adventurer and international monster hunter Josh Gates has careened through nearly 100 countries, investigating frightening myths, chilling cryptozoological legends, and terrifying paranormal phenomena. Now, he invites fans to get a behind-the-scenes look at these breathtaking expeditions.
Follow Gates from the inception of the groundbreaking hit show (at the summit of Kilimanjaro) to his hair-raising encounters with dangerous creatures in the most treacherous locations on earth. Among his many adventures, he unearths the flesh-crawling reality of the Mongolian Death Worm, challenges an ancient curse by spending the night in King Tut’s tomb, descends into a centuries-old mine to search for an alien entity in subterranean darkness, pursues ghosts in the radioactive shadow of Chernobyl, and explores sightings of Bigfoot from the leech-infested rain forests of Malaysia to the dizzying heights of the Himalayas.
Part journey into the unexplained, part hilarious travelogue, part fascinating look at the making of a reality-based TV show—and featuring never-before-published photographs— this Destination Truth companion takes readers on the supernatural expedition of a lifetime.
Absolutely a great read. This book not only had me laughing the whole time but it was also very informative - makes me want to get on a plane tomorrow and see the world. Love Josh Gates!
3 stars and disappointed
I'm giving this book a three because it was entirely too short! A quick read and interesting I was disappointed in the stories and travel accounts overall. I would have liked a book twice this size, as someone who watched all the shows I was hoping for more.
Laugh out loud
As a fan of DT, Josh Gates, and his crew, this book was fun as hell to read. There were more than a few parts I found myself laughing out loud, as I could imagine the story being told in Josh's voice with his trademark delivery. Great behind the scenes, well written, and very insightful. It's more than you'd think it is, give it a read!
