Wild by Nature
From Siberia to Australia, Three Years Alone in the Wilderness on FootBook - 2016
From National Geographic's Explorer of 2014, this is the harrowing and nearly unbelievable story of Sarah Marquis' solo 10,000-mile hike across the remote Gobi desert from Siberia to Thailand, then transported by boat to complete her hike at her favourite tree in Australia. Relying on hunting and her own wits, Sarah Marquis made it across six countries where she survived mafia, drug dealers, thieves on horseback who harassed her tent every night for weeks, temperatures from subzero to scorching, life-threatening wildlife, a dengue fever delirium in the Laos jungle, tropic ringworm in northern Thailand, dehydration, and a life-threatening abscess. Originally a bestseller in France selling over 60,000 copies, "Wild By Nature" will appeal to fans of Cheryl Strayed's "Wild."
