Craig Childs Presents: Field Guide to the Everending Earth -- Craig Childs is a professional adventurer. When not living off-the-grid with his wife and two young sons at the foot of the West Elk Mountains, he is off exploring nature and writing about his excursions. Subject matters range from near-death encounters and the most remote places in the world to vivid descriptions of the underside of Manhattan and careful meditations of our collective environmental future. Childs' adventures to the ends of the earth have given him a unique perspective on the environmental crises we collectively face. Even in the most dire and severe landscapes in the world, Childs finds stories of life and perseverance that runs contrary to the apocalyptic narratives that dominate the landscape.
