This is an auction for GOING TO EXTREMES by Nick Middleton.

“In GOING TO EXTREMES, Nick Middleton, a travel writer with a penchant for some of the more bizarre outposts of human habitation, ventures to the hottest, driest, coldest, and wettest inhabited places on Earth. He wants to know not only how people manage to live in these places, but also why they settled there in the first place. And, most intriguing of all - why they stay. He follows Stalin’s “Road of Bones” across Siberia’s icy wilderness to the world’s coldest town, then crosses the world’s oldest desert, the Atacama, to visit its driest. He descends into the cauldron of the Danakil Depression to suffer the searing intensity of an Ethiopian summer, then wades through the Indian monsoon to reach the world’s rainiest hills. Whether he’s risking castration in “the hell hole of creation” or facing the trauma of giant vampire slugs, Nick Middleton’s account of his journey to the edge is never less than fascinating.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Nick Middleton is a physical geographer who specialises in desertification. GOING TO EXTREMES is a television programme for Channel 4 about extreme lifestyles, in which Middleton experienced life in the hostile conditions other cultures must endure.
