Crows Nest: Allen and Unwin, 2016. Octavo, paperback, colour photographs, maps.
From National Geographic's Explorer of the Year, 2014, Wild By Nature is the extraordinary story of Sarah Marquis' solo hike from Siberia to Australia. Relying on hunting and her own wits, Marquis made it across the Gobi Desert and through fever-haunted jungles, surviving mafia, drug dealers, thieves on horseback who harassed her tent every night for weeks, temperatures from sub zero to scorching, life-threatening wildlife, a dengue fever delirium in the Laos jungle, tropic ringworm in northern Thailand, dehydration, and a life-threatening abscess. Through an incredible journey Marquis explores what it is to adventure as a woman in the most dangerous of circumstances, and what it is to be truly alone in the wild.
