Weaving together up-to-the-minute dispatches of mayhem in exotic locales and survival against formidable odds with memories of the pivotal events that shaped Pelton's obsessive spirit, "The Adventurist" spans six continents and four decades of hard-core living. Along the way, readers meet his many friends, from the Taliban in Afghanistan to hitmen in the Philippines; learn what it feels like to survive a plane crash in Borneo and a terrorist bombing in Africa; find out what it takes to dance with headhunters in Sarawak or crew with pirates on the Sulu Sea; and discover how Pelton honed his legendary survival skills at "the toughest boys school in North America".
Most important, this breakneck autobiography allows readers to participate in Pelton's mission -- understanding the hearts and minds of the people he meets. A funny and joyous book by a man passionate to learn about the stranger and wilder places in the world, "The Adventurist" takes readers places they might never willingly go.
