Crocodiles and Ice News

From Conrad Anker, North Face extreme alpinist
Why explore? Why expose oneself to undue hardship? These questions are at the root of human existence. In an age when adventure is a sales tool Jon Turk looks into the meaning of wild places. How have these sacred places transformed the individual and society? With first-hand experience ranging from the tropics to the arctic Jon Turk shares the importance of finding the wild in our daily lives. An important read as our society collides headlong into an over-subscribed world.
