Surviving Civilisation: new travelogue by Martin Vopěnka


The author and adventurer presents a summary of his life’s travels. On the pages of Martin Vopěnka’s latest book the reader visits places like Romania, Chile, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, the Philippines and Antarctica. The trips are far from being comfortable. Martin Vopěnka, a passionate traveller, always ventures into the wilderness, drawing the reader into the thrill of a unique adventure. The author’s sparse language gives the adventure itself room; the reader experiences surviving in the wild and shares the author’s respect for mountains, forests, rivers and animals.

A moving, dramatic, thought-provoking testimony, which is also a report on the state of the planet as well as human civilisation.
