Exploring communities on the edge of civilization! How do humans thrive, day after day, in nature's most extreme environments? Award-winning journalist Donal MacIntyre experiences their harsh struggles firsthand in four engrossing excursions to the farthest reaches of the world.
Join MacIntyre as he lives with Bedouins on the edge of the vast Rub' al Khali desert, where temperatures regularly exceed 120°F; the Insect Tribe in the rain forest of Papua New Guinea, where men spear crocodiles by torchlight; the Quechuan Indians in the Bolivian Andes, where salt flats stretch to the horizon in thin, barely breathable air; and the Bajau Laut, landless nomads who survive entirely on boats in the Celebes Sea. Each adventure serves as a study in humans' adaptability, imagination, and indomitable will to survive.
