Giant Steps Summary

Giant Steps: The Remarkable Story of the Goliath Expedition: From Punta Arenas to Russia by Karl Bushby

In Punta Arenas, Chile, in November 1998, Karl Bushby set out on one of the most remarkable journeys of modern times. His plan is as simple as it is extraordinary: to walk up the Americas, across the Bering Strait, through Asia, Russia and Europe, back through the Channel Tunnel and returning to Britain in 2011.

It is a journey of remarkable endurance -- 20 miles a day, 3,000 miles a year, 36,000 miles in total. By the time Karl returns, he will have crossed four continents, twenty-five countries, a frozen sea, six deserts and seven mountain ranges.

But more than that, unlike other similar expeditions, Karl is attempting it single-handed: no huge support teams, no large sponsorship deals, this is the inspiring true story of a man facing remarkable odds -- and winning.

Giant Steps Reviews

It is an odyssey worthy of Ulysses himself, a saga fit for the old Nordic Gods ... the spirit of young British men and women to do amazing and slightly crazy things is not yet crushed, but still alive and well * Frederick Forsyth *
Enthralling * MIRROR *
Inspiring true story of a man facing remarkable odds -- and winning * WOMAN'S OWN *
A harrowing, occasionally hilarious ride, a wild, one-man carnival of extremes...an extraordinary book * IRISH EXAMINER *
