In this highly engaging travelogue, acclaimed photographer Ken Duncan takes readers on a visual journey through many of the world's most remarkable places - from Australia's outback, to Africa, Antarctica, China, and more! On the way, Ken shares anecdotes that range from humorous to dramatic: always heartfelt, always insightful. In a time when we hear so often of financial crisis, extremism, and environmental catastrophe, Ken's words and images offer an encouraging counterpoint. 20.8 x 29cm.
Part autobiography, part travelogue and part reflection, this is a book of wonderful variety and range. There's humour, drama, anecdote and heart-searching. Every spread is illustrated by Ken's superb images: from the Aussie outback to Africa, from Antarctica to China - and much more. This book is in many ways a follow-up to Ken's acclaimed 2008 volume Ken Duncan: Life's an Adventure. That book surprised and thrilled readers, who read for the first time many of the stories behind Ken's career. For Ken, the greatest accolade came when he heard of a farmer whose life had (quite literally) been saved by reading the book. Ready to take his own life after two years of destructive floods, the farmer had happened upon Ken's volume in the farmhouse; he'd been completely turned around by Ken's personal story of chaos leading to hope. Ken Duncan: Life's a Journey continues in this tradition, telling more - much more - of the unique Ken Duncan story. Ken's passion is to speak honestly to his own generation - in the midst of a world often gripped by fear of financial crisis, terrorism or environmental catastrophe.
