A native of Gravesend, England (b. 1940) who holds dual British/Canadian citizenship, Anthony Dalton is a photojournalist, expedition organizer, and adventurer. Between 1969 and 1979 he organized and led long-range expeditions in the Sahara, West Africa, and the deserts of the Middle East (including Afghanistan), including camel treks in Mauritania, Algeria, and Mali. In 1980 he organized, led, and filmed (for a Canadian Broadcasting documentary) an expedition to view the salt mines of Taoudenit and the camel caravans that transport the salt to Timbuktu. He has conducted a near-fatal solo voyage by small boat around the west and north coasts of Arctic Alaska, made river expeditions in conjunction with Bangladeshi naturalists into the Sundarbans jungle in search of the Royal Bengal tiger, and paddled across the rivers of Arctic Canada, a journey part of which was filmed for the Discovery Channel. He has appeared as a guest on television and radio in Canada and New Zealand and has lectured in these countries as well as in England. His work has been published in Choice, Geographical, Global Adventurer, Saga, Wanderlust, and other magazines in Great Britain; in Sail, Sailing, WoodenBoat, Yachting, Hemispheres, and other North American magazines; and in magazines in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society (UK) and the Explorers Club (USA). HOMETOWN: Delta, British Columbia
"An arresting study of a sailor who invented himself as a modern hero and kept embellishing the legend until truth and fiction were impossible to pinpoint...Should appeal to all those who love adventure..." - Publishers Weekly "Valuable, compelling, and sobering." - Sailing "I was enchanted from start to finish by Wayward Sailor." - John Rousmaniere, author, After the Storm and Fastnet, Force 10"
