From life growing up in New Zealand's remotest family to extreme, globe-trotting adventures Chris Long grew up in New Zealand's remotest family, two days' hike from the nearest road. While the media decried Chris's parents for raising him outside of society, Chris remembers a ric...h and idyllic childhood living off the land, learning resourcefulness and courage. At age 17, Chris left Gorge River - the hardest decision of his life. He's now 29. In that time he's travelled to over 60 countries, from the Arctic to Antarctica. In this two-part book, Chris first tells the story of growing up at Gorge River, followed by the story of how his upbringing equipped him to take on extreme adventures around the world.
