About the Author
Alastair Humphreys is a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year. He has cycled around the world, rowed the Atlantic Ocean and walked a lap of the M25 - one of his pioneering microadventures. He is the best-selling author of 14 books, including Great Adventurers, which won the Stanford's Children's Travel Book of the Year and the Teach Primary Award for Non-Fiction. He has written eight books for Eye including the best-selling The Boy Who Biked the World trilogy, a series of novels for 9-12-year-olds based on the real-life adventures he recounted in Moods of Future Joys, Thunder and Sunshine and Ten Lessons from the Road. His more recent The Girl Who Rowed the Ocean is a similarly novelised version of his transatlantic crossing. He is a qualified teacher and host of the Living Adventurously podcast.

"A paean to the benefits of determined noticing. What really shines through its pages is Humphreys' omnivorous curiosity." --Financial Times
"Alastair Humphreys is the consummate roamer: big of heart, curious of mind, light of step." --Amy-Jane Beer, winner of the 2023 Wainwright Prize
