A Childhood Dream. A Lost Land. The Journey of a Lifetime. How do you become an explorer? It's a question every child has asked. And, Steve Backshall was no different. But after a rainy-day visit to an exhibition of artefacts from Papua New Guinea, it was a question that began to obsess the seven-year old Backshall. Due to this childhood interest, the vast, untamed wildness of Papua New Guinea was where Backshall forged his unlikely path. From crushing lows of early failures to the extraordinary highs of the BBC's Lost Land of the Volcano expedition, it was this dark island which gave Backshall his opportunity. Full of incredible wildlife, extraordinary wilderness, jungles, cannibals, pitfalls, triumph, danger and excitement, Looking for Adventure is the irresistible, inspiring story of a little boy who let his heart rule his head.I remember her propping up the by now dog-eared self-sufficiency handbook on the windowsill so as to follow its instructions. ... Months later, Blossom a born as the apple tree bloomed a was bouncing around her meadow with the unbridled joy young ... Michael became wildly excited, ditching his paddle to scrabble around for his spear, rocking the dugout and threatening to plunge us all into the mud.
