My first post on Lisbeth's Fruit Basket
I picked up Colin Angus' Lost in Mongolia in a discount bin at a bookstore a few months ago. Once I started reading, I could hardly put it down. A story of ultimate adventure, from the Yenisey’s headwaters in the wild heart of central Asia to its mouth on the Arctic Ocean, Colin Angus and 3 friends travel 5,500 kilometres of one of the world’s most dangerous rivers through remotest Mongolia and Siberia.
When I was done reading Lost in Mongolia I bought his previous book Amazon Extreme. Its the story of the first team to raft the entire length of the Amazon river.
This crazy Canadian adventurer has since completed the first human-powered circumnavigation of the globe. His newest book Beyond the Horizon tells the story. It was just released last week and I will be buying it as soon as it comes out in paperback.
Have a look at his website: http://www.angusadventures.com/index.htm
