Ed Stafford is the first person to walk from the source of the Amazon river to the sea this is his account of this amazing feat of exploration and adventure
Ed Stafford started leading remote expeditions after retiring from the British Army as a captain in 2002. Ed has also worked alongside the United Nations in Afghanistan assisting with the first ever presidential elections advising on security, planning and logistics. Prior to this journey Ed was in production with the BBC on their conservation series 'Lost Land of the Jaguar'. www.walkingtheamazon.com
"Walking from the Pacific, over the Andes and along the entire length of the Amazon to the Atlantic is truly extraordinary. No one has ever done this before and the pundits considered the route impossible. If the distance wasn't challenge enough, the dense forest, biting insects, snakes, bogs, wilderness and uncertainty of what lay ahead would daunt the staunchest explorer. To do all this in more than 800 continuous days with just a backpack puts Stafford's endeavour in the top league of expeditions past and present." -- Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE
