Product Description

by John Goddard

John Goddard, a career explorer and adventurer, experienced many thrilling close calls with death during his adventurous life. When he was a boy, John Goddard made a list of 127 things he would like to do in his life, from living with pygmies in Africa and headhunters in Borneo to exploring the world's greatest rivers and highest peaks.

The Survivor captures some of these adventures as it follows his experiences from boyhood, through his teen years into adulthood. Each individual adventure is sure to thrill readers - from the exquisite details of exotic locales to the hair-raising brushes with death - always emphasizing the danger and exhilaration intrinsic to the adventurous life. Unique to this book, though, is the author's reverence for life and all living things, his honesty in admitting his own recklessness, his awe and gratitude to the God that miraculously allowed him to survive each of these close calls with death, and his ability to use his experiences and the lessons he learned to set and achieve clear, meaningful goals. This great read will entertain and inspire people to live their dreams.

John Goddard, one of the world's most famous explorers and adventurers, led the first expedition down the entire 4,200 mile long Nile, the world's longest river. He was also the first man to explore the entire length of Africa's 2,700 mile long Congo River. Goddard has been the subject of numerous articles in magazines such as National Geographic, Life and Reader's Digest and over 200 television shows.
